Integrating care and transforming community services: what works? where next? (Policy paper 5)

The Health Services Management Centre at the University of Birmingham organised a seminar in June 2009 bringing together experts from the US and the UK.

The seminar focused on the evidence for integration; the current policy context in the NHS in England; case studies of integration from different parts of the country; and the contribution of the independent sector.

This report summarises the presentations made at the seminar and draws out the implications for policy and practice.
