Working together with all of our communities to improve and sustain wellbeing, care and promote equity
NHS Ayrshire and Arran and East Ayrshire Council are working together, through the Integration Joint Board, as a new health and social care partnership bringing together community health and social care services.
On 1 April 2014, new legislation came into practice in the form of the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014. This Act requires Health Boards and Local Authorities to integrate a range of health and social care services.
On 2 April 2015, all Council Social Work Services including children and families, justice, and adult services along with NHS Ayrshire and Arran Health Board community based children’s health services, transferred to the management structure within the partnership. Employees remain and services continue to be delivered through East Ayrshire Council and NHS Ayrshire and Arran with all of the employees now working within together in the new Health and Social Care Partnership. You will still be able to access services and receive support in the same way unless we inform you otherwise.
By bringing together the management and delivery of health and social care services within the Partnership we will offer more integrated streamlined services in our local communities. We will also be able to work with other colleagues in health, community and third sectors to develop new innovative services.
Information on the community health services can be found at links that will take you to NHS Ayrshire and Arran website and social care services can be found at on East Ayrshire Council website side panel links to Social care services.
