Report by Interim Chief Officer.
The Interim Chief Officer submitted a report relative to the IJB’s response to the Scottish Government consultation on the National Care Service.

The report intimated that on 9 August 2021, the Scottish Government published ‘A National Care Service for Scotland: Consultation’ which set out proposals for improving the delivery of social care following the recommendations of the independent review of adult social care. 

The report advised that the independent review of adult social care took a human-rights based approach with the final report being published in February 2021. It concluded that whilst there were strengths of Scotland’s social care system, it needed revision and redesign to enable a step change in the outcomes for the people in receipt of care. The Scottish Government consultation focussed on exploring the suggestions for significant structural and system change that would require to be supported by primary legislation and new laws and had now extended the scope of the review to other service areas including children and families, community justice, alcohol and drug services and social work.

It was noted that members of the IJB attended a facilitated workshop to review the key elements of the consultation’s proposals and the views raised had been summarised in the IJB’s proposed consultation, a copy of which formed Appendix 1 to the report.

The report further advised that the consultation closed on 2 November 2021 and all feedback would be analysed and the conclusions would be used to shape and develop new legislation. A Bill was expected to be introduced in the Scottish Parliament in summer 2022 and was likely to be extensive and complex and take at least a year to be scrutinised by Parliament. The Scottish Government intended the National Care Service to be fully functioning by the end of the parliamentary term in 2026.

DECIDED: That the consultation response to the National Care Service Consultation, attached as Appendix 1 to the report, be approved for submission to the Scottish Government prior to the consultation deadline of 2 November 2021.
