This audit from the Auditor General for Scotland assesses progress by NHS boards and councils in Scotland in improving health and care services for older people, looking particularly at developments through the Reshaping Care for Older People (RCOP) programme. It examines the extent to which care for older people has moved towards communities i.e. away from hospitals and care homes.
The audit also reviews how the Change Fund has helped to improve sustainable care for older people, and some challenges for organisations delivering services for older people.
