Second SENScot Session relating to the National Care Service Consultation, focusing on 'Commissioning' and 'Fair Work'.
Scottish Government is currently consulting on the creation of a National Care Service (NCS)– this follows an Independent review of adult social care led by Derek Feeley, which recommended that the service should be established on an equal footing with NHS Scotland. The Scottish Government has presented the consultation as an opportunity to change the way support and services are delivered.
SENScot is holding several sessions to provide SEN members with the opportunity to share their thoughts on key aspects of the National Care Service Consultation, with a view to submitting a response / developing a briefing on the social enterprise perspective.
This second session will consider key aspects of particular interest to social enterprise - ‘Commissioning’ and ‘Fair Work’ in the context of the National Care Service Consultation.
This follows on from the previous week's session focusing on the ‘Improving Care’ and ‘Scope of the NCS’ aspects of the NCS Consultation.
The first part of both sessions will include input from the Scottish Government team leading the consultation on the session's key areas, with the opportunity to ask questions. This will be followed by a discussion amongst social enterprise without Scottish Government representatives.
We’re also very keen to know what the initial reaction to this consultation is from SEN members. Please get in touch with email@example.com to find out more or discuss further.
We know that many SEN members are passionate about prevention and the development of local solutions and over recent years SENScot has worked with partners, including Outside the Box and Healthcare Improvement Scotland to explore the role that social enterprise can play in designing and delivering local community-based solutions to social care. The following reports capture some of the key issues highlighted by SEN members and others.
The consultation runs until 18 October 2021 and details of Scottish Government’s own consultation sessions can be found here.
