Event Details

Understanding Integration Joint Boards


In 2016, 31 Integration Joint Boards (IJBs) were established. These new bodies, working in the same areas as Councils, are now responsible for the planning and provision of all adult health and social care services.


The boards will be responsible for spending £8.5bn of the £13bn spent on health and social care in Scotland 


These new boards are responsible for the planning, commissioning and delivery of joint sensory impairment services including deaf services. In turn, they will have significant impact in the shaping of priorities. The new boards provide a real opportunity to raise the profile of deaf issues, and in particular, focus on a rights-based approach when engaging with IJBs.


In order to raise aware and understanding of the new IJBs, Brian Cavanagh will deliver a masterclass on "Integration Joint Boards: How to influence; How to make an impact".


The masterclass will:

  • Provide the policy context and objectives behind the new Integration Joint Boards [IJBs]


  • Explain their powers, how they will operate and make decisions.


  • Identify: the key decision makers on the day; the key roles/people to target; the right messages to deliver; and the correct positioning for SCoD members to adopt.


  • Explore how SCoD members can engage effectively and build on existing experience and relationships


  • Highlight where SCoD members can make the most impact and get most leverage.


On the day we will look at the opportunities and show you how to make them work.


And outline how to focus on the human rights aspects for deaf people in relation to IJBs.


When: Friday 9th June 2017 at 12noon – 4.00 pm


Where: Glasgow city centre
