S5W-12504: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 8 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-11962 by Shona Robison on 1 November 2017, whether workstreams will result in the clinical and wellbeing needs of care home residents with neurological conditions being assessed and met.

Answered by: Shona Robison 21 November 2017

As detailed in S5W-11962, the National Care Home Contract reform process is underway. Part of this work involves developing a set of nationally agreed terms which will better support local processes. The aim is to build a sustainable model for commissioning and purchasing care placements based on the needs of localities – supporting the redesign of services and enabling authorities to purchase placements on what is required, and supporting the well- being and needs of all care home residents.
