What is integrated care ?
Many people who have complex care needs receive health and social care services from multiple providers and in different care settings, without appropriate co-ordination or a holistic perspective. If services aren’t well co-ordinated and based around an individual’s needs, it can lead to:
- duplication and gaps in service delivery
- people getting lost in the system
