I shared my perspective with reference to the significant issues which inform the debate on social care services in Glasgow during 2015-16.
1) Funding of the £100m for delayed discharge announced by Scottish Government on 20th January 2015.
It is apparent, from the questions that were raised at the meeting, that the immediate concern of service users and their carers is the budget decision of Glasgow City Council at its budget meeting on 19th February. Proposals are being developed by all the political groups for this meeting including the Green Councillors Group. The views of people who attended the meeting will feed in to the process of developing budget options.
