West Lothian has a well-earned reputation for delivering ground-breaking and quality-driven public services to local people.
With the formation of West Lothian Community Health and Care Partnership (CHCP) in 2005, NHS Lothian and West Lothian Council joined forces to continue this tradition by bringing community based health and social care services closer together wherever possible and working in partnership to deliver more accessible, integrated and high quality services which are jointly planned and community-focused.
The CHCP manages a substantial range of NHS and council services including: community care, personal care, residential care, continuing care, mental health, general practitioner, dental, optician, pharmacist, district nursing, health visiting, five of the allied health professions, children's services, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.
The CHCP also works closely with voluntary organisations to provide a wide range of community services.
The work of the CHCP is governed by the Partnership Board which is made up of four NHS members and four elected members from West Lothian Council, reflecting the equal involvement of health and council.
The CHCP also has a Sub-committee to involve front-line staff, public and the voluntary sector.
All CHCP staff are managed by the Senior Management Team which is located in the Civic Centre, Livingston. The CHCP Director is responsible for the day-to-day operational and strategic management of the CHCP and is jointly accountable to both NHS Lothian and West Lothian Council.
