Health and social care integration

Led by Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire

Integration means that the expertise and resources of adult health and social care services are combined, shared, co-ordinated and planned jointly with other key partners in the third and independent sectors. 

The integration process will support people in North Lanarkshire to improve their own health and wellbeing as well as improving the quality and consistency of adult health and social care, including advice, support and services, especially for people with long term conditions and disabilities, many of whom are older people.

Frequently asked questions

A frequently asked questions web page is available and will be be regularly updated as integration progresses.

The FAQ has been written to offer a jargon-free explanation to key questions, including:

  • What's the principal aim of integration?
  • Isn't the existing way of working sufficient?
  • What's happening now and what happens next?

Code of Conduct for Members of North Lanarkshire Integration Joint Board

The Scottish public has a high expectation of those who serve on the boards of public bodies and the way in which they should conduct themselves in undertaking their duties. They must meet those expectations by ensuring that their conduct is above reproach.

The Ethical Standards in Public Life etc. (Scotland) Act 2000, "the 2000 Act", provides for Codes of Conduct for local authority Councillors and members of relevant public bodies; imposes on councils and relevant public bodies a duty to help their members to comply with the relevant Code; and establishes a Standards Commission for Scotland, "The Standards Commission" to oversee the new framework and deal with alleged breaches of the Codes.

The Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 (Consequential Amendments & Savings) Order 2015 has determined that Integration Joint Boards are "devolved public bodies" for the purposes of the 2000 Act.  The Code of Conduct for Members of North Lanarkshire Integration Joint Board has been specifically developed using a Model Code for Members of Devolved Public Bodies and the statutory requirements of the 2000 Act.
