About the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP)

Integration Joint Board

Information about the Integration Joint Board (IJB).

Local authorities and health boards are now required to plan and deliver community health and social care services together. This new way of working is referred to as 'Health and Social Care Integration.'

East Renfrewshire Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are jointly planning and delivering all of East Renfrewshire's community health and social care services - for children, adults and older people, including homelessness and criminal justice services. This is being done as the 'East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership', which is directed by the East Renfrewshire Integration Joint Board (IJB).

The IJB is a separate legal body and is the main decision making body for all health and social care in East Renfrewshire. It has the responsibility for planning and monitoring community health and social care services. The Integration Joint Board's Strategic Plan 2018-21 sets out the vision and outcomes it wishes to achieve for community health and social care services within the area.
