Clyde Valley review 09

A review of shared services across the Clyde Valley which sets out a “road map” for the eight Clyde Valley authorities (East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow, Inverclyde) to move to a model of integrated service delivery in certain key areas over the next five years. Its recommendations include:

* Closer working between local authorities and health boards to create an integrated health and community care service in each local authority area
* An integrated approach to waste management
* A single social transport solution
* A joint and streamlined approach to fleet management and maintenance
* A shared roads maintenance programme
* Property sharing and management in local hubs
* A joint approach to “back office” services
* Joint workforce planning
* A common charging framework

The authorities in the Clyde Valley Community Planning Partnership, which commissioned the report, are to consider the recommendations and discuss how to act on them in late 2009/early 2010.
