Budget Engagement - Health and Social Care Partnership

Background information

The Aberdeenshire Health & Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) is responsible for the delivery of millions of pounds worth of services annually. The AHSCP delivers services as diverse as Home Care, Criminal Justice Social Work, Community Hospitals, Drugs and Alcohol Services, Care Homes, Community Nursing and many others.

This year the AHSCP will need to make in the region of £12.5 million worth of savings across our budgets and we would like to ensure that you have the opportunity to help steer how we make those savings and efficiencies. By filling in the short survey below you will help to guide the conversation.

None of us are immune to the increase in costs that we have experienced recently, and this is true for the AHSCP too – costs associated with heating and maintaining buildings have increased by a large amount - much as they have for households.

However, our real pressure is in the ever increasing demand for our services - much of which has been driven by an ageing population. We need to ensure that we are able to deliver person-centred, sustainable services long into the future and this will mean that we have to take some difficult decisions on priorities to make sure we can continue to deliver services to those with the greatest need.
