The Improvement Service continues to support Community Planning Partnerships in the ongoing refinement and implementation of their Local Outcomes Improvement Plans (LOIP) and Locality Plans. Support is also offered to work with CPPs to determine the most appropriate governance and performance management structures to assist in the delivery of the LOIP. Of particular importance, is ensuring that CPPs are well placed to deliver on the community empowerment agenda.
Key elements of our support, can include working with CPPs to:
Working with NHS Health Scotland and Audit Scotland, the Improvement Service recently completed a ‘stock-take’ of all published LOIPs. The report was approved in May 2018 by the Outcomes, Evidence and Performance Board (OEPB). A key recommendation in the report was that the OEPB would support the Improvement Service, working with relevant stakeholders, to continue to develop and deliver appropriate support for CPPs. Therefore, in addition to the support identified above, it will also include assisting CPPs to contribute to the wider transformation agenda being pursued through public service reform across a range of agencies (who are already part of local CPPs).
The types of support and interventions provided will be tailored to each CPP and will be dependent on the skills and capacity available locally within the CPP.
