Audit Scotland: Changing models of health and social care

Audit Scotland’s recent report on changing models of health and social care revealed concerns that a lack of leadership and clear planning is preventing the wider change urgently needed if Scotland’s health and social care services are to adapt to increasing pressures.  The ALLIANCE, in association with the Health and Social Care Academy and Audit Scotland, is hosting a session on 18 May 2016 to debate the implications for the third sector and how we quicken the pace of change.  The session will also be an opportunity to discuss the relationship between Audit Scotland and the third sector and how we can work together on a range of issues.
