The pandemic has shown us the value of working closely with partners and communities and our Strategic Plan 2023-26 'Improving Lives Together'  builds on our vision that:

Everyone in West Dunbartonshire lives in a place they can call home, in communities that care, doing things that matter to them, leading healthy,happy and fulfilling lives, and, when they need it, they receive care and support that prioritises independence, control, choice and recovery.

West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) delivers children’s and adult’s community health and social care services, some of which are delivered with partners in other sectors.  The Integration Joint Board governs and directs the work of the partnership.

Our approach to service delivery follows the national Integration Principles. We aim that our services:

  • Are joined up and easy to understand from the point of view of service users
  • Take account of the particular needs, strengths and outcomes of different service-users
  • Respect the rights and dignity of service users and takes account of the particular characteristics and circumstances of different service-users
  • Be planned and led locally in a way which is engaged with the community and, takes account of the particular needs of service-users in different parts of the area in which the service is being provided.

Working together as an integrated health and social care system means we must share a set of values for how we work. This means that everyone knows what to expect. These values are key to delivering our vision and align with the values of our partner organisations within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and West Dunbartonshire Council.

Our values are:

  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Empathy
  • Care
  • Honesty
