sally shaw - june 2018 - mediaSally Shaw, Chief Officer of OHAC, said:

“The plan sets out the principles and approaches which will shape all that we do in delivering services that are of huge importance to people throughout our community.

“It describes new approaches to health and social care we are keen to develop with support from people, groups and organisations in Orkney.

“We need to develop different ways of working, with demand for our services continually increasing – and this just one area we are keen to gather feedback on.

“We’d also like to know what folk think of the vision, values and priorities we set out in the plan. I would encourage you to take a look and get in touch with us with your comments. You will be helping us make a difference to people’s lives.”
