Report that describes the approach taken to integrated care in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales with a view to drawing out the lessons for England. 

The report has been written at a time when policy-makers in England have made a commitment to bring about closer integration of care both within the NHS and between health and social care. This creates an opportunity to understand what has been done in the other countries of the United Kingdom to develop integrated care in order to inform policy and practice in England.

A learning community focused on integrated care and support that will help people make connections, share information and find answers to key challenges.

Consultation that follows on from an announcement made by the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Cities Strategy on 12 December 2011, which outlined the Scottish Government’s proposals for integration of adult health and social care.

Briefing that highlights some of the key enablers and barriers to integration and provides information on integrated approaches to health and social care in the UK, Europe and further afield.

Briefing that sets out the background to the Bill and its key provisions. It also provides a summary of the evidence received to the Health and Sport Committee’s call for evidence.

An Act of the Scottish Parliament to make provision in relation to the carrying out of functions of local authorities and Health Boards; to make further provision about certain functions of public bodies; to make further provision in relation to certain functions under the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978; and for connected purposes.

Report that synthesises evidence from seven case study programmes, each from a different country, that are successfully delivering integrated health and social care for older people with complex needs. The aim is to identify lessons for policy-makers and service providers to help them improve how care is designed and co-ordinated.

The LGA has partnered with NHS England, The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS), Monitor, NHS Confederation and the Department of Health (DH) to deliver a programme of work carried out by Integrating Care and PPL.

The toolkit enables Health and Wellbeing Boards and local partners to understand the evidence and impact of different integrated care models on service users, as well as the associated impact on activity and cost to different parts of the health and care system.
