At our Better Care Fund learning event, Norman Lamb MP, Minister for Care Services, shared his vision for integrated care. He highlighted the shifts that need to happen to achieve better care: including moving from a fragmented paternalistic system to one which is joined-up and shaped around the needs of the patient, and having richer collaboration between health and care services and the wider community.

Norman stressed that the changes needed to achieve joined-up care cannot be dictated from Whitehall – they need to be led by people who understand services and the needs of patients – and explained how the Better Care Fund would help local leaders to achieve this.
