Health and care

View the latest information from the Health and Social Care Partnership.

Much of the country is calling for the public to adhere to the new measures that have been put in place to protect our NHS and frontline staff. This includes our Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), which is responsible for delivering health and social care services in East Renfrewshire.

Our priorities have been to protect our most vulnerable residents during these extraordinary circumstances.  A huge amount of work is being undertaken, from business support staff ensuring as many staff as possible are set up to work from home and managing rotas for front line staff, training GPs to deliver online consultations, prioritising hospital discharges to free up beds in hospitals and get our residents back home and comfortable. Our district nurses and care at home staff are continuing to provide vital services to residents at home and our social work teams are working with our most vulnerable families and young people.

The HSCP will continue to work closely with colleagues in the NHS and Scottish Government throughout this pandemic.
