This framework document on integration, signed by 12 national partners, sets out how local areas can use existing structures such as Health and Wellbeing Boards to bring together local authorities, the NHS, care and support providers, education, housing services, public health and others to make further steps towards integration. By establishing a national collaboration, government is sending a clear signal to the entire health and social care system that integrated care and support is a critical issue to all and that all are committed to sustaining support for it over the years ahead. This document sets out this ambition, relevant to all health and care services and people who use services. The shared vision is for integrated care and support to become the norm in the next five years
