NHS Providers response to the integration white paper questions for implementation

In February, the government published its white paper on integration setting out proposals to accelerate joint working across health and social care at place level. It included a set of questions for implementation to which NHS Providers responded outlining the views of trust leaders. We fully support the government’s ambition to accelerate the delivery of joined-up health and social care; however, we also want to ensure that any unintended consequences are avoided, and that the potentially complex and far-reaching nature of the white paper’s proposals are fully thought through.
