The Local Account 2016/17
The Local Account is an important part of the Government’s plan to let people know about their local adult care and support services and how well they are performing. It also gives us the opportunity to make more information available to residents on our successes, challenges and priorities.
The council is committed to providing high quality adult social care services to residents with care and support needs, and works closely with the local NHS, mental health services, care providers and the voluntary sector to deliver joined up services.
Our services perform well, yet the financial and demographic challenges that lie ahead are significant and mean that we have to look at different ways of delivering these services.
Despite these challenges, we have an ambitious work programme in place for the next 12 months. We have built on our work with GPs, district nurses, hospital and mental health teams to integrate health and social care services.
We remain ambitious and passionate about improving the health and wellbeing for all our residents and will use your views from current and upcoming consultations to help shape services for the future ahead.
