What is the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership?

In Edinburgh, the City of Edinburgh Council and NHS Lothian have integrated the planning and delivery of all community health and social care services for adults and older people, along with homelessness, mental health and disability services.

This work is directed by the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board and delivered by the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership.

The Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership responsible for delivering community and bed-based health and social care services for adults in Edinburgh.

The Partnership is made up of over 5,000 colleagues employed by both the City of Edinburgh Council and NHS Lothian who work in health centres, GP Practices, community hospitals, care homes, nursing homes and communities across the city. Our staff provide care and support for people with mental health problems, long term physical conditions, as well as substance misuse problems.

We’re led by an integrated Executive Leadership and Senior Management Team and provide services through the three localities of North East, North West and South. We also work closely with many charities, the third sector and independent health and social care contractors and providers.
