Integration 2020: scoping research. Report to the Department of Health

Part of Integrated care

This report presents the findings from a programme of scoping research and engagement to better understand what excellent integrated health and social care should look like in 2020. It also tests out the Government’s draft Integration Standard with national stakeholders and local areas and provide feedback and support for further development of the standard. It draws on the results of a rapid evidence scan, research with five case study sites, and interviews and workshops with national stakeholders, and people who use health and care services. The report provides a summary of the policy context and its impact on health and social care integration, presents stakeholders’ views about the ambition for integration of health and social care by 2020 and the challenges associated with it. It also provides an overview of people's views on the seven objectives of the Integration Standard: Digital interoperability, Resources targeted at high-risk cohort to prevent crises and maintain wellbeing, Value for Money, Single assessment and care plans, Integrated community care, Timely and safe discharges, and Social care embedded in urgent and emergency care. The results of the study confirms support for the ambition of integration by 2020, because bringing together health and social care is universally seen as the right thing to do. It concludes by providing a framework for action for further development of the Integrated Standard. Appendices include details of the case studies and the rapid evidence review. The research, carried out for the Department of Health, will inform the government’s plans for the further integration of health of social care, including the next phase of the Better Care Fund.

Leading the Care Act: roundtable event held on 5 March 2015

Reports on the key messages from a roundtable discussion which looked at how leadership within social care needs to change if the Care Act is to improve people's lives. The event was hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and attended by key players in care and support, including people who use services, carers, commissioners, workforce development leads, care providers and policy makers. The report includes the presentations of speakers Baroness Sally Greengross, David Pearson, Professor Martin Green, and Sharon Allen; views from the roundtables; and key messages. Key messages from the event are summarised in four key areas: challenges and opportunities; the role of leadership; systems leadership; co-production with people who use services and carers; and leadership style, skill and values. Delegates concluded that leaders need to be good at achieving strategic and cultural change, and felt that it is good leadership that makes the difference to people’s lives – not just developments like pooled budgets or better IT systems.
