Removing the policy barriers to integrated care in England

Abstract

This briefing paper uses five case studies of health economies in the English NHS as a basis for examining how local clinicians and managers are working together to develop closer service integration and less fragmented care for patients. It focuses on what is facilitating or impeding change and sets out proposals for policy-makers that are designed to enable more rapid progress towards developing better coordinated services. It is intended as a contribution to discussions about the direction health reform should take under the new Coalition Government following the publication of the White Paper Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS (Department of Health, 2010).
