Angus Health & Social Care Partnership - Draft strategic Commissioning Plan 2019-2022
Thank you for taking the time to read this draft strategic commissioning plan (link below). We hope you will contribute to our consultation after reading it. The aim is to give you an insight into how the Angus Health and Social Care Partnership will continue to work to integrate services and how we will work differently to improve health and promote well being. We believe that everyone has the right to live a long and healthy life and to be supported to live at home when it is safe to do so. By 2022 we want to progress towards that belief. We know that we can’t achieve this on our own and need the support for the whole Angus Community to make a difference
Once you have read the draft strategic plan we would be most grateful
for your thoughts and suggestions and ask that you complete the questionnaire from the link on the home page of above link. Alternatively there are paper copies held at the Information Desk in Reception at the practice.
