£8.19 million sounds like a lot of money doesn’t it?
This is the Scottish Government’s allocation for Edinburgh’s Health & Social Care Integrated Care Fund. Then you stop and think:
- It’s for one year
- It must build on the learning from the RCOP change fund
- It must tackle multi-morbidity issues
- Edinburgh’s plan for this fund must be signed by –
– NHS Lothian
– Independent Sector
– Third Sector Interface (EVOC)
and submitted to Scottish Government in December 2014.

As with RCOP EVOC is working with statutory sector colleagues to consider the realistic priorities for this fund.
Our Annual third sector conference will host a workshop on these issues. We will also ensure that the EVOC thematic forums discuss learning from RCOP and priorities and that this feedback will be strongly represented at the strategic discussion.
