Learning from the vanguards has set out a blueprint for integrated care

29 June 2018


Responding to the report, NHS Providers head of policy, Amber Jabbal, said:

"The vanguards have made strides towards improving the way people access health and care setting out a blueprint for integrated care.

"It is promising that some vanguards have seen a slower growth in emergency admissions compared to the rest of the country, but we support the report's recommendation for further evaluation on the long term impact on outcomes and demand.

We must be realistic about what this funding can do alone without a clear longer-term strategy for transformation and support from national and local leaders.

"We must recognise that large-scale transformation in health care requires funding, implementation support, time, and the permission to make mistakes and learn from them.

"We welcome the commitment from the chief executive of NHS England to sustain and help to spread learning from the vanguards within the upcoming ten year plan, but we must ensure this builds on the progress made so far.

"Continuing the journey towards more integrated care will be a key pillar of the plan and funding settlement. But we must be realistic about what this funding can do alone without a clear longer-term strategy for transformation and support from national and local leaders."
