Strategic Commissioning Plan 2023 – 2026
In April 2023, Angus Integration Joint Board (IJB) approved the Angus Strategic Commissioning Plan (SCP) for the years 2023 – 2026.
The SCP outlines our ambitions for the adult health and social care services which have been delegated to Angus IJB by Angus Council and NHS Tayside and delivered by Angus Health and Social Care Partnership.
The SCP reflects the many conversations we have had with the people of Angus and our professional colleagues across all sectors and services. It describes our priorities for the next three years as we aim to shape services around individuals, unpaid carers and communities to support people to live and age well in Angus.
Strategic Commissioning Plan 2019 – 2022
We must produce a strategic commissioning plan that sets out how we will plan and deliver services using the integrated budgets under our control. We must fully engaged with our stakeholders in the preparation, publication and review of the strategic commissioning plan, in order to establish a meaningful co-productive approach, to enable us to deliver the national outcomes for health and well-being, and achieve the core aims of integration.

Carers Strategy 2023 – 2026
The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 places a duty on local authorities and health boards to prepare and publish a local Carers strategy. The duty to prepare the Angus Carers Strategy (ACS) is delegated to the Integration Joint Board (IJB) which is responsible for planning health and social care services in Angus.
The Angus Carers Strategy sets out our commitments to Carers and describes how Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) will support Carers of all ages during 2023-2026.
The Strategy builds upon our previous Carers Strategy 2019–2022 which was extended in response to operational demands brought about by COVID-19. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the majority of the actions identified to support the delivery of the last strategy have been achieved.

Angus Nature Prescribing Calendar
Taking care of our health and wellbeing is incredibly important and connecting with nature is a great way for people to improve their mood, reduce stress, sleep better and even reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.
Connecting with nature means not just going for a walk, but using our senses to notice the plants and wildlife around us when we are outside. Once people realise the benefits of connecting with nature, we know that they also develop a closer relationship to nature and want to take steps to protect it.
Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) wants people across Angus to benefit from nature and so have teamed up with ANGUSalive, Angus Council, NHS Tayside and RSPB Scotland to create the Angus Nature Prescribing Calendar*. This Calendar is full of accessible seasonal activities around Angus that anyone can do close to home or further afield, on their own or with other people, and help people find things to do that are meaningful to them.
The calendar is designed to be given to people as part of a consultation with their GP or other healthcare worker so that they can think about how they can build connecting to nature into their everyday lives.
Speak to your GP, healthcare worker or local social prescribing team at your next appointment to find out more about how to connect with nature.
