Abstract: Integrated care has increasingly attracted the attention of policy-makers and researchers over recent years as a way to improve fragmented healthcare systems and improve outcomes for people; complex and chronic health conditions in particular. In England, this has culminated in the restructuring of the National Health Service into 42 local Integrated Care Systems, bringing together health boards and local government in the management and commissioning of health services and social care. These substantial changes have received comparatively little attention, in part due to the ongoing pandemic and budgetary pressures on health services that Integrated Care Systems will have to address.
This seminar will consist of an introductory presentation by HERC’s Associate Professor Apostolos Tsiachristas on the basic principles of integrated care and existing evidence, followed by a talk from Lord Simon Stevens, former Chief Executive of NHS England, on the future for integrated care in the NHS.
