The Edinburgh Integrated Joint Board is responsible for the decision making and strategic planning of health and social care services for adults in the Capital. We deliver our services through the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership and both Board and Partnership are committed to delivering an caring, healthier, safer Edinburgh.
The EIJB want to support and nurture the thriving communities in Edinburgh. And we also want to embrace the opportunity to create a different relationship with people and organisations across the city. Our first step is to listen and learn what health and social care means to you.
And it’s why we’re inviting you to join the conversation on the future of health and social care in the capital and help us shape Your health. Your care. Your future. at our digital events this November.
