Background to integration

What is integration?

Integration is about making sure health and social care services are seamless from the point of view of someone who uses them. The aim is for service users and carers to experience better, more joined up services. We will do this through:

  • more integrated services, planned and delivered jointly around the needs of people and carers
  • flexible budgets, which can move between organisations to make sure they have the biggest impact
  • services which are better geared towards helping people live at home safely and get back there as soon as possible after a hospital stay.
