People’s lives rarely fit into neat compartments. Getting the care we need may involve several different services and agencies. We want to discuss how local services can work better together to meet people’s needs. Read more about integration…
What do you think?
a. What does ‘good’ look like? Where are there good practice-based examples of integrated services that support and enable better outcomes?
b. Where should services be better integrated around patients, service users and carers – both within the NHS, and between the NHS and local government services, in particular social care (for example, better management of long term conditions, better care of older people, more effective handover of a person’s care from one part of the system to another, etc)?
c. How can integrated services achieve better health, better care and better value for money?
d. What, if any, barriers to integration should be removed, and how can we incentivise better integration of services at all levels?
e. Who needs to do what next to enable integration to be progressed in a pragmatic and achievable way?
f. How can innovation in integrated care be identified and nurtured?
