POLICY: Integrated health and social care in England

Update

28 April 2015
Provides an update on the latest developments in integrating health and social care in England since May 2014, including: the Better Care Fund (BCF); the Pioneer Programmes; the NHS England 'Five Year Forward View' and 'Vanguard' programme; Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC); and the 'DevoManc' plan.
Whatever the outcome of the general election, two key issues will need to be addressed: securing the money to fund and securing the resources to deliver integrated health and social care. These are not only crucial for the future sustainability of both social care and the NHS, but also to ensure that high quality care is available to all who need it.
