Caring for Ayrshire
Caring for Ayrshire is an exciting and ambitious programme that will transform health and care services across Ayrshire and Arran. More people are living into old age, and whilst this is good news, we need to make sure that people lead not just longer lives, but longer, healthier lives. Our health and care services need to evolve to make sure we can look after more people and in better ways.
