Following our Think Tank on creating wellbeing in October, we are delighted to be able to share this graphic report setting out our five provocations for the future of health and social care. The Think Tank brought together leaders from across Scottish society to discuss the question “What is needed to transform Scottish society so that all citizens are able to thrive?” Having analysed the discussions, five themes emerged: Courageous leadership; Nurturing transformation; Emphasising humanity, values and flourishing; Target culture and Ceding power.
These provocations represent steps that need to be taken to transform not just our health and social care support and services, but our wellbeing as a society. Singularly, they each represent a fundamental change to the present system and while these changes are certainly not easy to achieve, they are achievable. The provocations by no means provide a comprehensive solution to creating an ideal health and social care system for Scotland, but the five ideas combined go some way to creating the right conditions for the transformative change we seek.
Our aim is that these five themes will shape our work in the coming year as we continue to foster new approaches, facilite work that brings people together from across all sectors and enables the deeper conversations that will stimulate the transformative change necessary. We will be sharing a more in-depth policy document which expands on these provocations in the New Year, but in the meantime, we’d love to hear your responses to these provocations, so please share your thoughts in the comments section below or tweet us @HandSCAcademy.
