Details about the current projects that the Public Involvement Team is involved in, are summarised in the Public Consultations & Involvement Quarterly Template (pdf)
The Emergency Care Centre is nearing completion with a number of clinical specialities relocating to this new part of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by the end of 2012. The Emergency Care Centre Project continues to involve patients and members of the public in the design, with work on going to the entrance foyer, which will be built once the existing A&E is demolished.
A review of maternity services started in 2010 to ensure the service delivers the best possible care now and into the future. Women, clinicians, managers and community groups have been involved throughout the process.
In 2010 the Grampian NHS Board agreed its Health Plan for 2010-2013. During the consultation, the public supported the overall plan but told us that we needed to provide more detail. Therefore the purpose of the Health and Care Framework is to provide greater detail and direction.
As part of the Health and Care Framework, a number of pathfinder projects are underway which have been chosen to look at different communities and services in detail and to identify the health and care needs for specific groups.
Forres is one of the community pathfinder projects. The aim of the pathfinder is to develop a model for health and care services for the community of Forres that will help to inform future services in Grampian.
Inverurie is one of the Health and Care Framework community pathfinder projects which is looking at the health and care needs of the Garioch population.
To address how we care for a changing population we need to look at the way we deliver services, including how we deliver services for older people. The national agenda is called Reshaping Care for Older People and work is ongoing to deliver this locally. More information about this national agenda can be found at the Scottish Government Website.
