Director of Health and Social Care
and Chief Officer to the Board
Working together with all of our communities to improve and sustain wellbeing, care and promote equity
On 2 April 2015, East Ayrshire Integration Joint Board was established with the commitment to improving the health and care outcomes for patients, families and carers and wider communities.
NHS Ayrshire and Arran and East Ayrshire Council are working together, through the Integration Joint Board, as a new health and social care partnership. The partnership vision is to deliver positive outcomes for our residents by ensuring that children and young people get the best start in life, that people live healthier, longer lives and are supported to be independent and have choice and control - no matter who they are or where they live.
East Ayrshire Integration Joint Board has wide representation including four elected members from East Ayrshire Council, four non Executive Directors from NHS Ayrshire and Arran, employee and Union representation, carers and people who use our services, medical and clinical professionals, social work professionals and representation from third and independent sectors.
Eddie Fraser is the Director of Health and Social Care and Chief Officer to the Board. View our list of members.
During 2015/16 the Integration Joint Board confirmed the more detailed arrangements to include in addition to the established Strategic Planning Group, the Health and Care Governance Group, Audit and Performance Committee and East Ayrshire Partnership Forum. More recently the Board has supported the development of a Stakeholders Forum to ensure as wide a representation from people who use services and carers can contribute to and have their views heard on how services are shaped and delivered.
