POLICY: Nursing and the engine room of integration

01 June 2015
The results from RCN Scotland’s locality planning survey and recommendations for improvement
Locality planning has been identified by the Scottish Government as a central part of delivering the integration of health and social care; it is seen as the “engine room” of integration.

Nurses have a key role in making locality planning work. They have the experience and knowledge of different contexts of care, deliver services on the frontline and already engage in joint working.

With funding from the Scottish Government, in April 2015, the RCN in Scotland issued a survey to 62 nurses involved in locality planning in Integration Authorities across Scotland to better understand the nursing experience of the process.  This report sets out our findings and recommendations.
