The integration of health and social care in Midlothian comes a step closer this week when the Midlothian Integration Joint Board formally meets for the first time (Thursday August 20).

The Integration Joint Board’s primary responsibilities will be to produce a strategic plan, allocate the integrated revenue budget for health and social care and oversee service delivery.

The new integrated service will be responsible for delivering a range of nationally agreed outcomes which apply to adult health and social care across Scotland. These include improving adult health and social care services, delivering more services in community settings, reducing inequalities, and improving health and care outcomes for local people.​
