Outcomes

The Scottish Government has set out nine national health and wellbeing outcomes  that we, along with every other health and social care partnership in Scotland, has to work towards.

These are the goals we are looking to achieve for the people of North Lanarkshire.

National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes

  1. People are able to look after and improve their own health and  wellbeing and live in good health for longer;
  2. People, including those with disabilities or long term conditions or who are frail, are able to live, as far as reasonably practicable,  independently and at home or in a homely setting in their community;
  3. People who use health and social care services have positive  experiences of those services, and have their dignity respected;
  4. Health and social care services are centred on helping to maintain or improve the quality of life of people who use those services;
  5. Health and social care services contribute to reducing health  inequalities;
  6. People who provide unpaid care are supported to look after their own health and wellbeing, including reducing any negative impact of their caring role on their own health and wellbeing;
  7. People using health and social care services are safe from harm;
  8. People who work in health and social care services feel engaged with the work they do and are supported to continuously improve the information, support, care and treatment they provide; and
  9. Resources are used effectively and efficiently in the provision of health and social care services.

Success Indicators

Integration of Health and Care in North Lanarkshire will be a success if:

  • We improve the outcomes for people;
  • People are healthier;
  • Children are given the best start in life;
  • People are fully included in the decisions that affect them;
  • We play our full part in reducing inequalities within our communities;
  • People are less reliant on services and are able to live independently;
  • People are better able to manage their own conditions;
  • People receive the right support and services for their individual needs;
  • Preventive measures reduce long-term health conditions;
  • People only access hospital when they need to;
  • People are discharged from hospital as soon as they are able;
  • More people can choose to die at home;
  • Carers receive the support they need and feel supported;
  • We improve outcomes for offenders, communities and victims;
  • Our data provides an accurate assesment of the needs of our communities;
  • Multi agency teams function well within localities;
  • We work within available finances and resources;
  • Staff feel valued and that their work is worthwhile.

     

    Integration

    In North Lanarkshire, NHS Lanarkshire and North Lanarkshire Council have integrated the planning and delivery of all community health and social care services.

    This work is led and directed by the North Lanarkshire Integration Joint Board, with the council and health board working together to deliver the services of Health & Social Care North Lanarkshire.

    Equality Impact Assessment

    The Equality Act 2010 and Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2012 hold public bodies accountable for advancing equality and protecting people with protected characteristics rights within Scottish society. Integration Joint Boards, the local governing bodies that have devolved responsibility for the planning and monitoring of community health and social care services in their area of Scotland, were added to the public bodies listed in the Equality Act (general and specific duties) in June 2015.
