Nicholas Timmins explores how an integrated system has improved health care in Canterbury, New Zealand. He considers the impact of the devastating earthquake in 2011 and how Canterbury District Health Board implemented a successful system that created one vision for care, empowered staff and changed the funding model.

Fascinating audio presentation on Integrated Patient Care from NZ that has important lessons for the UK. The pictogram placing the 'home' at the centre with the hospital at its edges is a visual reminder of the after effects of Francis and the direction of travel to improve patient care.
