Collaborative Approaches for Commissioning and Procurement of Social Care in Scotland – event by CCPS
This event will give an opportunity to hear about and discuss new ways of planning, purchasing and funding social care in Scotland.
The Independent Review of Adult Social Care 2021 made recommendations for significant and transformational changes to the way that social care is designed, planned and funded in Scotland. The review calls for a radical shift of power to enable rights of supported people to live good lives and have support which meets their outcomes.
Commissioning for Public Good
The Independent Review recommended the need for an end to the ’emphasis on price and competition and the establishment of a more collaborative, participative and ethical framework for adult social care support focused on achieving better outcomes for people and for staff delivering support’. The Feeley review also made specific recommendations that ‘alternatives to competitive tendering are developed at pace across Scotland and procurement decisions must focus on the the person’s needs and not be solely driven by budget limitations’.
Join us for this online event where you will have an opportunity to hear about different collaborative approaches for commissioning and procurement of social care and alternatives to competition.
