Integrated care: organisations, partnerships and systems

Our submission to the House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee inquiry

16 March 2018

We submitted evidence to the Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee inquiry on integrated care. 

In our response, we lay out the key challenges facing STPs and outline our evidence on transformation and whole-system change.

We discuss looking beyond short-term demand management, and ensuring national programmes are aligned and support local action. 

We present our learnings from our research on spreading complex health care interventions and outline the importance of learning from the experience of other national efforts to support challenged health economies. 

We conclude by presenting six main questions for the committee to consider in it's ongoing inquiry.
