Every Health and Social Care Partnership in Scotland has to have a Strategic Plan that sets out the vision and future direction of their health and social care services. This includes how the nine National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes for Health and Social Care will be delivered locally, along with the six public health priorities for Scotland. Strategic Plans are reviewed regularly to make sure that they are still relevant to the needs of the area and the people who live there.
As part of FHSCP ongoing commitment to support those who undertake a caring role we want to listen to the views of unpaid carers to help shape Fife Carer's updated strategy for 2023 - 2026. We are asking as many carers as possible to tell us about their experience as a carer and about their quality of life. We want to find out what is working well and what actions we should take to help carers in Fife to achieve their own personal goals alongside managing their caring role. The information will be used to help inform the new carers strategy for Fife.
