Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire
From the 1st of April 2016 a new legal body, North Lanarkshire Joint Integration Board (JIB) has responsibility for planning, commissioning and overseeing the delivery of community health and social care services. A Board drawn from North Lanarkshire Council, NHS Lanarkshire, professional health and care disciplines and third and independent sector organisations, will plan and commission local support and care services. These will be delivered primarily by the Council and NHS Lanarkshire working together in teams in a new integrated way, to transform, re-design and improve the outcomes for the 6 localities across North Lanarkshire.
The JIB is preparing a Strategic Commissioning Plan to manage and integrate functions and drive a long-term programme of service transformation, re-design and improvement, particularly seeking to address local needs, change the culture, improve corporate systems and delivery processes while achieving a range of National Outcomes related to integration. The Plan will have to be affordable and will be effective in achieving an agreed level of performance. Throughout the planning process the JIB will respect our staff, our service users, our carers, our patients, our partners and those with whom we choose to contract.
