One-stop health care help could be just a call away

PLANS to introduce a single access point for people to get the right care service they need quickly are to be revealed in a series of roadshows.

Dates for the roadshows are still to be announced but the idea is for the public to have their say and help shape a number of ideas coming from Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) to reduce pressure on hospitals and support people to stay at home as long as possible.

The roadshows were discussed at Oban Community Council on Monday when councillors heard the single-point access would be a phone number to call up and speak to a professional who would decide what kind of care was needed.
