This section sets out both the Annual Performance Reports and Performance Reports to the Board. The Partnership’s Integration Joint Board uses a Forth Valley-wide Performance Management Framework to monitor its progress. Reflecting the individual priorities of the local partnerships, individual measures and targets are being created.
The role of performance management is to ensure that efforts are clearly targeted and that desired outcomes and improvements are achieved. It is fundamental to ensuring delivery of improved health and social care, and ensuring the best experience focusing on person-centred care.
Annual Performance Reports
The Partnership’s Annual Performance Report shows the progress made in delivering its Strategic Plan during past year. The report also summarises the work planned for the year ahead.
The Annual Report highlights the complex and challenging environment of health and social care. It includes examples of the real impacts and positive outcomes made possible by the efforts of Falkirk’s health and care services, made possible by the commitment, resilience and professionalism of our workforce and Partners, including carers and volunteers.
Scotland’s Health and Social Care Partnerships are required to publish annual reports by 31 July each year under the Public Bodies (Joint Working) Regulations 2014. This year, due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic upon services, the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 allowed Partnerships to postpone the publication of annual reports until the end of November 2021.
Ongoing Performance Reporting
The Partnership’s Integration Joint Board receives regular Performance Reports. These reports ensure the Board fulfils its ongoing responsibility to ensure effective monitoring and reporting on the delivery of services. They also provide information on performance against targets and measures set out in the Strategic Plan.
A Strategy Map has been created, which ensures there is a direct link from National Health and Well Being outcomes and Strategic Plan outcomes to performance indicators.
