The Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership will continue holding a consultation on health and social care locality plans.
The plans were developed for Berwickshire, Cheviot, Eildon, Teviot & Liddesdale and Tweeddale, and focus on local needs and priorities by those who use and deliver health and social care services, especially in response to:
- increasing demand for services due to a rise in the population over 65 years of age
- increasing pressure on resources due to the rise in demand
- changing service user expectations and the desire to the improve health and social care experience.
The formal consultation, which began on Monday 17 July, is set to end on Saturday 16 September 2017.
