Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership
The Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership is made up of representatives from Perth & Kinross Council, NHS Tayside and other community partners.
The aim is to improve things for people who need the support of health and social care at the same time. By working together the partners want to ensure that people will receive the seamless support they need to live active, healthy and independent lives in their own homes for as long as possible. In Perth and Kinross, we recognise that people who are ill, vulnerable or have disabilities, often need support from a number of services to enable then to live as independently as possible and to prevent unnecessary stays in hospital or in residential care. The challenge is to deliver services with communities in new ways, as demands on services increase.
