Abstract

There is currently much policy emphasis on both partnership working between health and social services in the UK and on the outcomes delivered by services. This article provides an account of two consecutive projects centred on these two themes. The first project, at the University of Glasgow, sought to address the lack of evidence about the outcomes delivered to service users by partnerships. Following from this project, the Joint Improvement Team of the Scottish Government commissioned the researchers to develop a toolkit to involve users and unpaid carers in performance management in community care in Scotland. The remit of this second project expanded during 2007 as it became linked with the development of the emerging National Outcomes Framework for community care in Scotland. This article outlines the outcomes‐based piloting work currently under way in Scotland.

Abstract

Since the late 1950s the focus of UK policy for people with learning disabilities has been on deinstitutionalisation and care in the community. In the last decade policy focus has shifted towards individualised support and community membership. Deinstitutionalisation in Scotland started later than in England, and still has some way to go. This article considers four aspects of the current hospital closure programme in Scotland: involving people with a learning disability and families, managing hospital closure, service reprovisioning, and strategic planning.
