Integration of health and care is now the key objective of health reform. With healthcare needs changing because of an ageing population and the growing prevalence of chronic conditions such as diabetes, many experts and NHS leaders have advocated joining up health and care services. NHS England, the Government and the Opposition announced new initiatives and proposals to deliver integration at pace and scale. While policymakers and politicians appear to be united in the direction in travel there is still debate on how to get there and profound barriers to change. In October 2013 Reform partnered with Novo Nordisk to explore how policymakers can facilitate integration that benefits patients. The seminar was led by Bill McCarthy, National Director of Policy at NHS England.
