Edinburgh Council to redesign CES model as part of new social care strategy

Scottish Referendum Campaigning Enters The Final Stages

Edinburgh City Council is launching a project to redesign and transform its community equipment model as part of a new strategy to tackle social care issues in the Scottish capital.

A new focus on technology and streamlined services is designed to keep people living at home independently for longer as the pressure on social care increases.

The new strategic plan will seek to make use of existing and new TEC [Technology Enabled Care] solutions, such as telecare.

The Edinburgh Integration Joint Board (EIJB) oversees the delivery of services in the capital and vowed to ‘radically transform’ how Edinburgh delivers its health and social care.

Plans include the “streamlining of all current processes” in the provision of community equipment and the introduction of a “future proofed” strategy for provision of equipment going forward.

TEC solutions will be a “key enabler”, according to the new strategy and there will be a review of adaptations in the city.

The strategic report said: “We will encourage healthier lifestyles, seek to make best use of current and emerging technology… We will build on self-directed support and seek to improve our telecare service and response times and the provision of equipment.”

The council will be holding workshops with key stakeholders to consider the best approach to new technologies, solutions and equipment models.

Ricky Henderson, vice chair of the EIJB, said: “Edinburgh’s population is expected to increase faster than any other city in Scotland and with that comes a number of very real challenges.

“The number of residents who are aged 85+ is expected to more than double over the next 20 years. We need to accept that the status quo is unsustainable in the long term and our care systems need to evolve.

“Our Strategic Plan identifies new ways of delivering care so that we can better meet the current and future needs of Edinburgh citizens and, crucially, work to improve the population’s overall wellbeing.”
