Integration of Health and Social Care - a project commissioned by Social Work Scotland

Social Work Scotland commissioned Children in Scotland, in collaboration with CELCIS, to undertake a project which examined the implications for children’s services from the integration of adult health and social care services in the Public Bodies (Joint Working) Act 2014.

The first report, which is a literature review, is available here

The second report, includes the study methods and findings, and covers the outcomes from a national survey and detailed case studies in two local authority areas. Initial findings were reported at the SWS Annual Conference on 18 June.  You can read the report in full here.
