Key Facts

The Edinburgh Integration Joint Board - which has governance oversight of the Partnership - sits formally every two months and is supported by four sub-committees and by the Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership. With a population of approximately 513,000, the Partnership itself divides the city into four localities, namely: North West; North East; South East; and South West.

Meeting the service needs of a growing population is a significant for the area, as well as providing for more people who are living longer but not necessarily healthier lives. The strategic plan notes an increase in the prevalence of long-term conditions in the population overall too. The Council and its housing association partners have agreed to invest up to £300m to deliver around 3,000 affordable homes and integrated health, care and support services as part of a broader programme to build 16,000 affordable homes over the next ten years. As of July 2018 there were 73 GP surgeries in the area.
