Home care recruitment high on agenda for district partnership meeting in Inverness

The Inverness East District Partnership is meeting in the Town Hall, Town House, Inverness on Friday 31 May at 10 a.m. Members of the public are welcome to attend the Meeting, which is to be Chaired by NHS Highland Board Member Gillian McCreath.

The main issue for discussion is how difficulty in recruiting people to work as home carers can contribute to unmet social care needs.   Partners are also to discuss how to encourage GP Surgeries to set up patient participation groups.

The Inverness East District Partnership is one of nine in The Highland Council area.  The Partnerships are considering issues relevant to a defined geographic and service delivery area covering both Integrated Children’s and Adult Services and are a key element of local engagement.  “Inverness East” includes the school catchment areas and associated school groups of Culloden Academy, Millburn Academy and Inverness Royal Academy.

Meetings are held four times a year.

For further information please contact Ward Manager Stewart Wardlaw on (01463) 724378.
