Sub Health and Social Care Partnership Areas

Defined in the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 as a smaller area within the borders of a Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP).

Each sub area (also referred to as Locality or Community Partnership) has been agreed in consultation with local professionals and communities and relates to natural communities. Locations of GP practices are taken into account. They vary in size according to local circumstances.

Methods of creating the Sub Areas vary between HSCPs and include use of building-block geographies, use of best-fit building-block geographies, communities and drawing lines on a map.

Within some HSCP Sub Areas are then aggregated to form larger administrative or operational geographies, which are also made available if sent from source.
