roundtable health and social care discussions


Senior finance professionals and other influential players came together to consider how health and social care integration can be moved forward most positively.

From Desire to Delivery report

Participants gave their views with a considerable degree of consensus across varying regional and national circumstances on four questions:

  • What would successful integration look like?
  • What is the financial context?
  • What barriers stand in the way?
  • How might those barriers be overcome and the right integrated outcomes facilitated?
