Short report highlighting insights and recommendations from SCIE's work supporting local areas following Care Quality Commission local system reviews. The reviews aimed to understand how services are working together to meet the needs of people who move between health and care services, with a focus on people aged over 65. The recommendations highlight the need for any area developing plans to tackle the interface between health and care to: engage all local partners in planning; clarify governance arrangements to ensure ownership and delivery of action plans are clear; align plans with existing programmes; balance short-term fixes with longer-term improvements; and consider the use of external facilitators to challenge and support planning. The insights will be useful for leaders responsible for developing integrated working within health and wellbeing boards, local authorities and clinical commissioning groups.

The resource covers: transition in the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014; identifying support needs of young carers; timing of a transition assessment; transition assessments under the Care Act 2014; approaches to assessments; information and advice; transition planning; transition of young carers; practice examples, describing young carers’ journeys through transition; and a process map with suggestions on how to put the stages into action.
