Strategic Needs Assessment

Download the document here

The Strategic Needs Assessment for Adult Health and Social Care Integration is a collection of evidence from a wide range of sources which has been pulled together to help inform the Dumfries & Galloway Partnership Strategic Plan. The evidence includes both numbers and statistics, and also explanations and quotes from people who have been consulted about aspects of health and social care.  It also includes information about different groups of people, some of the challenges and information around some of the services currently being provided.  The needs assessment is intended to be a reference document and answers questions like ‘How many people would that affect?’ and ‘Is that becoming more or less of an issue?’ as well as ‘Do we know enough about this topic?’.
