BORDERS residents are being asked to help shape the future of health and social care in the region.

The Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) recently launched its 'Feedback from our Communities' survey which invites Borderers to have their say on the partnership's strategic plan for 2023-26.

The HSCP is working with the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) on the survey.

Chris Myers, chief officer of Scottish Borders HSCP, said: “The continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the increased cost of living and providing services is impacting everyone in the Borders.

"As we look to create a resilient plan for the future delivery of our Health and Social Care, we want to hear your views."

The short survey will be combined with feedback from 'Community Conversations', which are due to take place shortly, to produce a report.

Mr Myers added: “We are urging all Borders residents to complete this survey and take part in upcoming Community Conversations.

"Now is your chance to give us your feedback and to have your say on what is important to you in the future of our services.

"Have your say and share this information with loved ones living in the Borders.”

The Community Conversations sessions will run in-person and online in August and September with the support of NDTi.
