Aberdeen City CHP (Community Health Partnership)

Aberdeen City CHP manages a wide range of community based health services and, in partnership with local councils, provides a focus for the integration between primary care, specialist services and with social care to ensure that local population health improvement is placed at the heart of service planning and delivery.  We will put the needs of the patients and local communities first, and empower those who provide care to deliver service improvements through changes in the way skills and resources are deployed.

The CHP will:

  • Support the improvement of the health of the local communities
  • Provide service benefits for local people
  • Work in partnership with local authorities, voluntary sector and other stakeholders (e.g. social work, housing, education and regeneration)
  • Actively involve the public, patients and carers in decisions that affect the planning and delivery of health care and health services for their communities

The CHP will improve the way your community health and social care services are organised and delivered. These services will continue to be provided in local health centres, clinics, social work offices and community settings across Aberdeen City.  The CHP is also responsible for many services already delivered jointly by health and social work staff including: older people, learning disability, mental health and drug and alcohol services.

The CHP also works closely with local GPs, pharmacists, dentists, opticians and specialist staff from local hospitals.
