Initial scoping exercise into delivery of health and social care services

Date: 7th March 2017
Category: Health and health services

The Scottish Health Council has commissioned a scoping exercise of the rationale, appeal and feasibility of the establishment of a pan-Scotland collaborative approach to young people's participation in the planning and delivery of health and social care services.

The scoping work will help the Scottish Health Council to inform the development of the Our Voice vision for young people across Scotland. Our Voice is based on a vision where people who use health and care services, carers and the public will be enabled to engage purposefully with health and social care providers to continuously improve and transform services. People will be provided with feedback on the impact of their engagement, or a demonstration of how their views have been considered.

This short exploratory exercise is taking place between January and March 2017, and includes this short survey of stakeholder views.

There are two versions of the survey:

The survey will close on Friday 24th March to enable presentation of the findings at the Scottish Health Council's event: "Our Voice, Transforming How We Engage with Young People". If you would like any information about this event, please email Keir McKechnie, Senior Project Officer, Strengthening the Voices of Children and Young People Project, Scottish Health Council

Please note this is an initial short scoping exercise, and not a full consultation.
