NHS England’s update on the Forward View, published in March 2017, made the bold statement that: ‘Our aim is to use the next several years to make the biggest national move to integrated care of any major western country’. This aim is being pursued through the development of integrated care systems.
One year on since the first systems were announced, our speakers for this online event brought local, national and international perspectives on integrated care to discuss:
- how integrated care systems are developing
- how these systems can involve key partners – including patients, the community, clinicians and wider public services – in efforts to integrate care
how learning from international examples of large-scale change can inform these efforts.
