Scottish Government wants to expand on the recommendation made by the Independent Review of Adult Social Care to create a National Care Service, with Scottish Ministers being accountable for adult social care support. Scottish Government wants to hear your views on creating a comprehensive community health and social care service for people of all ages.

COVID-19 has really highlighted the importance of social care services across Scotland and as such, Scottish Government wants to hear the views of as many people as possible to shape this proposal, including: people who access care and support, carers, members of the workforce and those who may access care and support in the future.
