The National Sensory Impairment Strategy

ALAN NICHOLSON

Scottish Government


  • Main Points from SEE HEAR

  • 7 recommendations overall – 2 for the Scottish Government.

  • Onus on local partnerships to deliver.

  • Local Authorities, NHS Boards andlocal service delivery agents.

    • Localism is key - should have local charities on board - not just large nationals.

    • Minister is holding the Partnerships to account for delivery.

  • Main Points from SEE HEAR

  • Funding over 2 years – initially last year and this.

  • Because Strategy was launched later funding will carry forward to 2015-16 – so still a 2 year project.

  • Funding in for the implementation of the Strategy, e.g., service re-design and re-alignment.

  • Funding is NOT for buying services or products.

  • Core Aims & Objectives:

  • The core aim of the strategy is to demonstrably improve the quality of life for those people in our society living with or experiencing sensory impairment – including family members and carers.

  • The specific objective is to deliver on the 7 strategy recommendations, and by embedding the model care pathway into service delivery across Scotland.

  • All this must recognize the need for outcomes to be tailored to meet individual needs in a local setting addressing local priorities.

  • Challenges, Issues and Opportunities:

  • Appreciate that there will be challenges and issues for Partnerships:

    • Basic sensory checks don’t miss more complex or serious conditions.

    • Dis-aggregation of expenditure across multiple agencies.

    • Consistency of information to be collected.

    • Thresholds for what, when and how often data should be recorded.

    • Standardized categorization and classification of information.

  • Challenges, Issues and Opportunities:

  • But there will be opportunities too…

    • To better understand the registration and regulatory requirements of training bodies such as Royal Colleges.

    • Understanding where there are gaps and deficits in the knowledge and skills across workforces, and what is needed to address these.

    • Building an appropriate and effective knowledge exchange.

    • Gaining a better picture of the service delivery landscape and what needs to be done to improve it for the benefit of users.

  • Next Steps – Warm words into Actions:

  • Early Days – but Partnerships need to be seriously looking at how they are going to implement the Strategy in their areas.

  • This means having genuine and meaningful partnerships across Local Authorities, NHS Scotland and the Third and Independent Sector at LOCAL LEVELS.

  • SCOVI has a role to play too in acting as a voice for blind and visually impaired people in Scotland and in engaging with its members to provide feedback to the Scottish Government
