Integrated care for people with multiple long-term conditions

This content relates to the following topics:

More than 8 million people in England live with three or more long-term health conditions. Improving integrated care and joined-up services can have a huge impact on the lives of people with several long-term conditions, how they manage their health and wellbeing and how they encounter the health and care system. 

Join our event on 4 February 2020 to:

  • explore the experience of people who live with multiple long-term conditions and the impact of better joined-up health and care services
  • share case studies of different approaches and innovations in care delivery to support people with multiple long-term conditions across local health and care systems
  • discuss how health and care systems can better integrate delivery of health and care services across different disease pathways.
