HSCS Chief Officers


Each of Scotland’s 31 health and social care partnerships has a chief officer.

The role of each chief officer is to lead the implementation of the strategic plan in their area, and to integrate and transform health and social care services for their local communities. They do this in two ways, through their strategic role within their integration joint board (IJB) and via their operational role within their NHS board and local authority.

Each health and social care partnership works towards a set of national health and wellbeing outcomes.

All Partnerships are responsible for adult social care, adult primary health care and unscheduled adult hospital care. Some are also responsible for children’s services, homelesness and criminal justice social work.
