Bringing together health and social care has been a constant and dominant policy theme for many decades, and many places around the country are already demonstrating the potential to do things differently.
We – the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, Local Government Association, NHS Clinical Commissioners and NHS Confederation – believe it is time to put integrated systems and services to the test, to translate aspirations into action, and to ensure they deliver for our citizens.
