Aberdeenshire Health & Social Care Partnership Consultation

Calling all Aberdeenshire residents!

Are you interested in how Health and Social Care services are delivered in your area? Have you ever visited a GP? Seen a school nurse or health visitor? Visited a Care Home? Or maybe you care for someone or maybe you, yourself are cared for? The chances are that everyone in Aberdeenshire has come into contact with the services that the Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) is responsible for delivering.

The Aberdeenshire Health & Social Care Partnership provides health and social care services across Aberdeenshire, these include; GPs, Community Hospitals, Minor Injury Units, Care Homes, Primary Care and Urgent Care Services, School Nursing, Community Nursing, Community Pharmacy, Physiotherapists, Dieticians, School Nurses, Public Health, Adult Support and Protection, Health Visitors.amongst many others

The AHSCP is in the process of developing a Strategic Plan for the next five years and we need your help to do it. We need to know what you think about the way we currently deliver health and social care services in your area and how we should shape our services to make sure they are fit for the future.

The Strategic Plan will be built around 5 key priority areas namely, Effective use of Resources, Prevention and Early Intervention, Reshaping Care, Engagement and Tackling Inequalities and Public Protection. A webpage has been developed with a range of resources including explainer videos to make it as easy as possible to participate

Rhona Atkinson, Chair of the Integration Joint Board (IJB) said: “The team has developed a series of short videos that explain what each priority is, why it is a priority and some of the services that help us to deliver on that priority. So, it really is as easy as possible to follow and to tell us your experiences of what we offer now and how we could improve things for the future.

“There are a number of ways to get involved including an online pack which can be downloaded and used in a group setting, or you can simply choose to complete a very short online survey on the priority area you are most interested in.

“We really want to hear from as many people as possible so we are hoping that anyone involved in their community will feel empowered and supported to run their own session and feedback the outcome to us.”

Cllr Anne Stirling, Vice Chair of the IJB, said: “The Strategic Plan for the next 5 years will determine how we develop our services and how we, as a partnership, spend our money. So, it really is vital that we hear from as many people from our communities as possible to make sure we are investing in the right things in the right areas, to best support the current and future health and wellbeing of everyone across Aberdeenshire.”

EMERGENCY ROAD CLOSURE – C43c – 19/03/2019 South Ythsie

Good afternoon.

An emergency road closure is required on the C43C adjacent to South Ytshie in order to assist with our on-going drainage works. The existing drainage infrastructure was believed to be off road however our investigation of the ground conditions has found that works are required closer to the carriageway and the closure is necessary for Health & Safety reasons.

This closure will be in place from today (19 March 2019) for up to 3 days.

Diversion for this closure is C43c, C42c Douglashead, C41c Raxton, B999.

For further information please contact either myself or Paul Wilson (01467 538961).

Police Scotland Survey

Shaping our direction and delivery
2019-2022 – survey

We are keen to get our National survey out to as many organisations, groups and members of the public as possible. It really is an opportunity to have your say on the strategic direction of Police Scotland over the next three years and to have your voice heard.

It is set up to accept responses as individuals or collated responses on behalf of groups or organisations, so I’ll leave it for you to decide how you do this. It is also allows you skip aspects that you don’t feel are relevant to you – you can say as much or as little as you want. The survey itself explains the background and we’d really appreciate it if you could share it across all your own networks to ensure we get as wide a response as possible, including externally.

All I’d add is that the more feedback we get, the more we can shape things going forward. I have attached a printable version attached, should you require it.

There are six sections:

* Keeping people safe
* Communities are at the heart of policing
* Contacting and talking to us
* Supporting our people
* Managing demand
* Our policing priorities

Our survey can be completed online at:

You can also complete this form electronically and email it to:
