Community Health Partnerships have been established in Scotland as key building blocks in the modernisation of the NHS and joint services in Scotland. They have a vital role in partnership, integration and service redesign and are the key mechanism through which all primary and community based services are planned and delivered. They provide an opportunity for partners to work together to improve the lives of the local communities which they serve.
Community Health Partnerships provide a focus for the integration between primary care and specialist services and with social care and ensure that local population health improvement is placed at the heart of service planning and delivery.
