Our Co-Managing Director Claire Kennedy has been speaking with a panel of experts on CBI’s Public Service podcast. This is the third in a series in which UK businesses debate how public services can best meet the challenges they face. This podcast looks at the integration of health and social care. The NHS has always been responsible for health, and local councils for social care, but with rising demand for services and shrinking budgets the government has finally decided to address their separation.
The Chancellor announced a £3.8bn fund to drive integration of health and social care. If integrating care is the answer, how will it work? what are the a barriers? and what will it look like from a patients perspective?
