THE Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is holding a series of online and in person engagement sessions.

This engagement will give all Borders residents the opportunity to have their say about the future delivery of health and social care.

Borders residents are asked to attend their local Community Feedback sessions, the findings from which, will be used to produce a ‘Feedback from our Communities Report’.

Chris Myers, Chief Officer of Scottish Borders Health and Social Care Partnership 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.

“We are urging all Borders residents to complete this survey and take part in our engagement sessions. 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.

“ Even if you do not use health and care services very often at the minute, your views on the services of the future are crucial.”

These sessions will be taking place throughout August. There will be a very short presentation and then the floor will be opened for questions and discussion.

Booking is required for the online sessions. The in-person sessions will operate on a drop-in basis so you don’t need to book.
