Scottish Context

Demographics – population increase

of 50% of over 60 years population and 84% in over 75 between 2008 and 2033.

Extrapolating from estimates of

growth in demand would mean Scotland’s care budget for older people growing from £4.5bn to £5.6bn (2016), and £8bn (2031).

Background is that there appears to

be a very large structural fiscal deficit in Scotland over next 16 years.

Response

Scottish Government developed a 10 year change

programme for ‘ Reshaping Care for Older People ’ – promoting co-production and community capacity building as a key work stream.

Investment – to drive this programme, Scottish

Government created a four year Change Fund for older people’s services of £70m p.a. as a catalyst.

Coordination – to support this work stream, the Joint

Improvement Team provides support for 32 locally based NHS, Council, Third and Independent Sector Partnerships.

Policy influences

 

Sir Harry Burns (Chief Medical Officer for Scotland) – health and social care based on ‘mutually beneficial partnerships between patients, their families and those delivering healthcare services which respect individual needs and values ...’ .

Christie Commission – ‘unless Scotland embraces radical new collaborative culture throughout our public services…budgets and provision will buckle under the strain’.

The Governance International Co-Production Star

Governance International Co-Production Star Training

JIT commissioned Governance International to provide

three two-day training workshops in January, and a further five in April.

Participants came from LAs, NHS, Independent and Third

Sector Partnerships.

Gave participants a clear understanding of what co-

production can achieve, how it is being used on the ground, and how they can roll out co-production in their organisation and partnerships.

National Community Capacity Building and Co production Conference, 26 January in Dunfermline

Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing ‘The Scottish Government is committed to supporting older people to enjoy full and positive lives in their own homes, or a homely setting, within their own communities, for as long as possible… the involvement of older people and other members of these communities must be at the heart of both shaping how this is achieved and of the renewed public services that do and will support that achievement. Community capacity building and co-production are central to these endeavours…’
