Health and social care integration

Leadership for Integration

We have been re-contracted to deliver a further 2 years, 2018-2020, of this national leadership development programme aimed at primary care and social care professionals including GPs, senior primary care professionals, and middle or senior managers in statutory, third or independent social care organisations working in lead roles within health and social care partnerships to shape, develop and deliver integrated care.

This partnership project sponsored by NHS Education for Scotland, the Royal College of General Practitioners Scotland and the Scottish Social Services Council, and funded by the Scottish Government, has 2 strands:

You as a Collaborative Leader is a mix of personal coaching and groupwork sessions designed to help leaders recognise and build on their strengths and sources of resilience, enabling them to lead change more collaboratively and effectively in delivering health and social care integration.

Collaborative Leadership in Practice is aimed at pairs or groups of health and social care professionals who are working collaboratively on the delivery of a locality-orientated project that supports integration. It offers tailored support to enable partnerships to lead change collaboratively and move forward effectively with a particular integration project or issue.
