We have now remobilised the Cowdenbeath Area H&SC Locality Planning Core Group and Plan, and the group met in June 2022.

Going forward until December 2022 we will:

  • Further deliver our priorities linked to wellbeing & social isolation, supporting mental health, carer support, H&SC public representation and locality communication.
  • Coordinate Short Life Working Groups within the locality that will focus on some of those paused priorities
  • Host a further Core Group meeting in September 2022
  • Host the Cowdenbeath Area Wider Stakeholder Event in November 2022, where we will look to refresh the Cowdenbeath Area Priority Plan, based on local engagement and data intelligence from Cowdenbeath.

Although we had to pause all of our Core Group work and meetings due to the Covid-19 pandemic, work has still been happening in the background virtually with our Chairs and Senior Leadership Team.  September through November saw us finalising our refreshed locality plans, focussing on work that we can realistically remobilise through 2020/2021, taking into account the Covid-19 restrictions that we are all now dealing with.

Take a look at the priorities identified in our remobilisation route map for all our locality areas.


Saw us move into phase three, where the Cowdenbeath Area Core Group reported back to their Wider Stakeholder Group, highlighted the refreshed strategic plan and refreshed data, reported on what was delivered and explored with them next steps.  The event was held in November 2019, with the aim of the Cowdenbeath Area Health & Social Care Locality Plan being refreshed by the end of 2019.
