Strategic Plan and Budget Consultation

Closes 8 Mar 2019

Opened 11 Feb 2019

Overview

‘Enable people in Clackmannanshire and Stirling to live full and positive lives within supportive communities’

By bringing health and social care services across Clackmannanshire & Stirling together, we have the opportunity to improve our outcomes through joint working, better communication, improved efficiency and reduced duplication.

We want the people of Clackmannanshire & Stirling to be at the heart of redesigning services, and to be involved in designing changes to services which will focus on people and put them first. Through working together, we can start to tackle the issues identified within our Partnership area.

We recognise the critical role of the whole community in determining the success of partnership working. It is essential that our plans are informed and owned by those who work most closely with service users, families and carers and in local communities.  This will include volunteers and staff from third and independent sector providers as well as those who work in statutory health and social care services.  By recognising the strengths and all of the resources within partnerships and communities, and taking advantage of opportunities such as shared learning, we can maximise outcomes for people and improve wellbeing.

We are required to publish a Strategic Commissioning Plan describing how the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership will make changes and improvements to develop health and social services for adults over the next three years (2019-2022).

This is a high level plan underpinned by a number of national and local policies, strategies and action plans. It will provide the strategic direction for how health and social care services will be shaped in this area in the coming years and describes the transformation that will be required to achieve this vision.

Why We Are Consulting

The base 2018/19 budget for the Partnership totalled £181m.

The demand for, and cost of, the services we deliver continues to outstrip available resources. To provide sustainable services to the Partnership population we currently estimate that we will need to make savings or service efficiencies of £5m to £6m each year over the coming 5 years.

In order to achieve this we need to focus investment of the resources we do have on local and national priorities and achieve best value in everything we do. The overarching priority for the Partnership is supporting people to live in the own homes or homely settings as long as possible. Achieving this within the resources we have available will require difficult decisions to be made on how we spend public money.

Your views are sought on the impacts any of the savings options and proposed Strategic Planning priorities would have on you or your community.

No decisions have been made and none will be taken until after the engagement exercise is complete.

The consultation should take around half an hour to complete.
