People-Led Care Portfolio
This is a newly formed portfolio combining a number of programmes and has been created both to reflect the increasing focus on development of people-led practice and also to give greater emphasis to this in the future.
The following are summaries of the work currently falling under this portfolio and will be developed further over the coming months.

- Outcome based strategic commissioning
Des McCart, Senior Programme Manager, email@example.com
We support health and social care organisations to build quality commissioning relationships which enable maximised outcomes for individuals and/or communities.
‘Outcomes-based commissioning’ describes an approach to health and social care commissioning based on outcomes but also involves:
- a focus on population
- metrics and learning
- payments and incentives
- co-ordinated delivery across providers
Our work has four main themes:
- Raising awareness and expertise around Self-Directed Support and the links it has to person-centred care
- Collaborative Procurement - developing good practice to support the embedding of Self-Directed Support
- Widening the Market - to facilitate choice and control on how people can meet their health and social care needs
- Community Led Support – supporting a programme with partners organisation NDTI to change social care assessment and engagement practice to better support Self-Directed support
- Third and Independent Sector Engagement
Allan Young, Third and Independent Sector Engagement Programme Lead, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our key priorities are to ensure that health and social care organisations understand and articulate the added value of the third and independent sectors, and know how to engage with, and make best use of them, where appropriate. We develop and deliver support to third and independent sector organisations and ensure meaningful engagement in our programmes of work. We provide an interface between Healthcare Improvement Scotland, the ihub and the third and independent sectors to optimise their understanding of and potential contribution to engage with, co-design and co-deliver programmes of work.
Through commission to Scottish Care, we support independent care sector engagement in the redesign and improvement of health and social care services. We work alongside national organisations to ensure outcome based commissioning practice, including procurement practice, allows for a thriving and innovative sector.
- Person Centred Health and Care Improvement Programme
Diane Graham, Improvement Advisor, email@example.com
The Person-centred Health and Care Programme aims to support improvements in Person-centred care and practice across Health and Social care organisations in Scotland. Applying person-centred practices within health and social care services allows people who use those services to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to more effectively make informed decisions and be actively involved in their own health and care. If people who work in public services are being person-centred they will ensure that care is personalised, co-ordinated and enabling so that people can make informed choices, manage their own health and live independent lives, where possible.
The way people experience health and care is an important component in delivering quality support and care services, as evidence shows that a focus on person-centred care can result in improvements in health behaviours, and health and wellbeing outcomes. Delivering this for people who access health and care services also requires the development of person-centred cultures for the workforce that support their wellbeing and provide more fulfilling work environments.
Currently the work involves:
- Improving Care Experience
- Building capabilities in Person-centred Practice
- Developing and supporting a Person-centred Care Network of Practice
