Integrated Care Communities

Developing joined up health & care in communities

An integrated care community works together to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the community. We will do this by: 

  1. Joining up health and care services to work better together
  2. Providing more care out of hospital where possible
  3. Supporting people to have information about their health conditions.
