New health and care integration toolkit launched

Clip-integrationWorking in partnership with the Local Government Association, NHS Confederation and ADASS, we have developed an integration self-assessment tool kit to help local health and care leaders move further and faster on achieving their vision of integration

It will enable local areas to assess their own readiness to bring about integration, and identify what action they need to take.

The tool kit was officially launched at the LGA’s annual conference on 7 July and follows the launch of ‘Stepping up to the Place: The key to successful integration’  a joint report by NHSCC, NHS Confederation, LGA, and ADASS.

Our co-chair and chair of Aylesbury Vale CCG  Dr Graham Jackson said “We know that place-based integrated health and social care systems are key to delivering truly person-centred care.

“Our joint report with the LGA, NHS Confederation and ADASS ‘Stepping up to the Place’ set out what this could look like – the new tool kit will be a valuable resource to help local health and care systems put this vision into practice at pace.”

The tool kit will be piloted in several areas before its full roll-out in autumn, when it will be available to all areas.
