Overview

Could you help shape health and social care services for adults in Edinburgh?

The Edinburgh Integration Joint Board is seeking to recruit two people with lived experience of using health and/or social care services to join the Board and provide a service user perspective on the planning and delivery of these services.

Following the implementation of the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act on 1 April 2016 adult health and social care services have been delivered by the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership, which is a partnership of the City of Edinburgh Council and NHS Lothian. The Edinburgh Integration Joint Board is responsible for the strategic planning of health and social care services for adults and the governance of the Health and Social Care Partnership.

The role of the service user members will be to fully participate in meetings of the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board and its Strategic Planning Group to ensure that the Board is provided with a service user perspective on all aspects of its business.
