The Kirkcaldy “Creating Healthy Communities” Roadshow Workshop was held in May 2017. Following on from that, those who attended the Roadshow and other key staff were invited along to Locality Planning ‘Wider Stakeholder Group’ meetings in October 2017 and May 2018, to identify, discuss and agree the emerging Kirkcaldy Health and Social Care priority areas for action.

Three priority models have been agreed:

  • Mapping Exercise to be carried out of all resources within local area (in particular mental health) and explore a one point of access concept, with the support of National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) Community Led Support Programme and link with Templehall Neighbourhood Plan.
  • Set up an Integrated Team in Kirkcaldy – based in an Inclusive Living Centre to deliver a joined up Adaptations Service.
  • Co-ordination of care facilities. Reviewing what they are doing in line with the local area provision available.

The next steps will be to collate the areas for action into an Agreed Priorities Table for Kirkcaldy and to establish the Health and Social Care Locality Planning ‘Core Group’.

Further updates will be posted here as they become available. In the meantime, have a look at what Carers’ Representative on Fife Health and Social Care Partnership’s Board, Morna Fleming, has to say.
