Health and Care Integration

Government announced that health and care will be required to have plans in place by 2017 to integrate by 2020. In addition, in both the north and south of the county, new models of health and care are being considered.

In particular, it will be considering whether to enter into developmental arrangements for an accountable care system through the Better Care Together programme and the resultant implications for the Council.
