Accountable Care Organisations offer potential for more joined up health and care

05 July 2018

 

Responding, the head of strategy at NHS Providers, Miriam Deakin said:

“We welcome the High Court’s ruling on the introduction of Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs).

“ACOs are one potential vehicle which trusts and their local partners may wish to explore to deliver more joined up health and care services.  Local systems need flexibility which will allow them to fund and deliver services based on the needs of people in their area.

ACOs are one potential vehicle which trusts and their local partners may wish to explore to deliver more joined up health and care services.

“It is important that we consult nationally and locally about proposed changes to how NHS and care services are provided. We look forward to contributing to NHS England’s planned public consultation on the draft accountable care contract and hope the outcome of this leads to further clarity for trusts, patients and the public.”
