Scotland Excel is the national procurement service to Scotland’s Councils and has been working with Scottish Government, COSLA and Scottish Care to look at the way that Care Home Services are procured and contracted for in Scotland.

Of the 33,000 people living in care homes in Scotland, approximately 11,000 of those fund their own care.

While many Councils and Health and Social Care Partnerships are commissioning alternatives to this form of care, it is still chosen by many people and the aim of this work is to get the best approach to raise the quality of service provided.

If you wish to express a view about the provision of care home care in Scotland please ensure that your voice is heard by reading the strategy here Scotland Excel Care Home Services for Older People and then completing the survey on the link below

Care Home Services for Older People - Procurement Strategy

The survey will close on 10th July 2017
