Edinburgh Integration Scheme Amendment

Closed 15 Aug 2019

Opened 4 Jul 2019


Following consultation in 2015 the Integration Scheme was approved by Scottish Government and the Integrated Joint Board (IJB) was established in July 2015.  

Since then, the Integration Scheme for the Edinburgh IJB requires to be updated to reflect changes brought about by the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 (the “Carers Act”), which introduced new statutory obligations on local authorities and health boards, requiring certain local authority and health board functions to be delegated to Integration Joint Boards.
