In a speech on 7 June 2011, the Prime Minister said ‘integration is really important to our vision of the NHS’ and made integrated care one of his five NHS ‘guarantees’.
The NHS Future Forum published its report following the listening exercise on the Health and Social Care Bill on 13 June 2011. Follow up reports on its latest phase of engagement will be published shortly. Integrated care is one of four workstreams set up as part of this work.
A slide pack that synthesises evidence and experience about integrated care has been developed by The King’s Fund and Nuffield Trust. It covers definitions, evidence, case studies, enablers and facilitators and overall lessons and is available to download on our website: The evidence base for integrated health and social care
