People are living longer, healthier lives and with the needs of our population changing the way in which we provide services has to change too so that we can meet these needs now and into the future.

Following on from Scottish Government legislation NHS Highland in Argyll and Bute and Argyll and Bute Council have integrated health and social care services in the form of a Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP). The Partnership went live on 1st April 2016.

Please note that this website was created to provide information on the integration of health and social care services within Argyll and Bute. As the Partnership has now gone live the website will be turned off from the 24th June 2016 and information on the HSCP will be available from the relevant sections of the NHS Highland website (click here to view) and the Argyll and Bute Council website (click here to view).

Core Values

The core values of the Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care
Partnership are to ensure compassion, respect, equality and fairness through a person centred approach.

What is Integration?

The integration process aims to ensure that instead of Argyll and Bute Council and Argyll & Bute Community Health Partnership delivering certain services separately there will be a more co-ordinated approach to the delivery of these services.
