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.

Joint working to deliver better care

Short report of joint event organised by London Health and Care Integration Collaborative, SCIE and PPL on the theme of joint working to deliver better care. The event was attended by over 70 people in London with an interest in or involved in delivering integrated care. It aimed to enable participants to hear the views of experts, share learning and practice about what works, and learn about practical steps they can take to develop joint working and ensure it works effectively. Areas covered included developing an effective communications and engagement strategy, leading co-ordinated, co-located teams, and co-producing change with people who use services. The report provides summaries of the plenary sessions and discussion at the event. Key messages include, that: prevention, early intervention and integrated care are all linked; leaders are able to look beyond their own organisation to the needs of the system overall; we need to see communities and people as assets with contributions to make; and that getting staff buy in and valuing staff contributions and ideas is critical.
