Integration Joint Board Strategic Commissioning Plan 2022-2025 Consultation

1. Introduction

To ensure that people's experience of health and social care and support is as good as it can be, the Integration Joint Board (IJB) is developing the next Strategic Commissioning Plan (SCP) for Health and Social Care. The SCP will build on the existing plan for health and social care and support in Dumfries and Galloway.

We have been having conversations with people who access and deliver care and support including health and social care professionals, Carers and provider partners, to hear and understand what is important to them now and in the future.
