NHS Ayrshire & Arran provides a comprehensive range of high quality health services. Over the years we have invested in modern hospitals and community facilities, and our highly trained and qualified staff provide health care to a population of around 367,000. We also have a duty to protect public health throughout Ayrshire and Arran.
We are committed to involving local communities and partners in shaping health services that are important to the people of Ayrshire and Arran. Actions, directions and future developments form the basis of the Ayrshire and Arran Local Health Plan – an agreement between NHS Ayrshire & Arran, the local community and the Scottish Government.
NHS Ayrshire & Arran work in partnership with three local authorities and other partners to develop joint health improvement plans (JHIPs) for each local authority area. The plans outline the objectives, strategies and actions for each organisation to improve the health of the local population. Local Partnership Agreements between health and local authorities set out our joint plans for community care service.
