The Vision – Statement of Intent “The Highland Partnership is committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for our population and service users. We believe that services should be person centred and enabling, should anticipate and prevent need as well as react to it, should be evidence based and acknowledge risk. We will improve the quality and reduce the cost of services through the creation of new, simpler, organisational arrangements that are designed to maximise outcomes and through the streamlining of service delivery to ensure it is faster, more efficient and more effective.” The Highland Council & NHS Highland 16 December 2010
Values and Principles Services should be person centred, respecting individual need and circumstance. Services need to be preventative and anticipatory, as well as reactive and responsive. Services should be enabling; designed and delivered to support people to achieve their potential, independence and attainment; risks cannot be eliminated and approaches to maximise a user’s potential may require the acceptance of a higher level of risk. Users must be involved as partners in the design and delivery of care. Improvements in service quality should be the priority, and achieving this will in turn improve efficiency and reduce cost. The intention of a service intervention needs to be clear and understood; services need to be effective and deliver the outcomes intended.
Partnership Agreement Legal Basis (Community Care and Health Scotland Act 2002) Delegated Functions Regulation Changes (AWI & ASP) Transition and Ongoing Arrangements Performance Management Framework
SCHEDULE PART 18B - ASP OFFICERS SCHEDULE PART 18C – AWI ACT Further to revised regulations agreed by the Scottish Parliament in March 2012, references to ‘Council Officer’ in the Adult Support & Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 apply where any function under Part 1 of the Act is delegated by a local authority to an NHS body. Any relevant reference in that part of the Act to, a ‘Council Officer’ is to be read as including a reference to an employee of an NHS body, and any reference to a ‘council nominee’ is to be read as including a reference to a nominee of the NHS body. For the purpose of the lead agency arrangement in Highland, these roles are delegated to NHS Highland social workers by the Chief Social Work Officer, overseen by the Head of Adult Social Care. The Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 places a duty on local authorities to supervise a guardian who has personal welfare powers. These functions cannot be delegated from a local authority to a health board. It therefore remains the responsibility of Highland Council to ensure arrangements for the supervision of ‘welfare guardians’. The duties of local authorities in carrying out these supervision functions are to ensure that the guardian and the adult are visited on behalf of the local authority within certain timescales. Highland Council will ensure that NHS Highland social workers are supported and monitored, and act on its behalf in carrying out such visits. These arrangements will be overseen by the Head of Adult Social Care.
