Integrated care starts from the needs of the whole person. It is about coordinating your care, whether you have physical or mental health needs, or social care needs, or all of these.
The aim is that you have a better experience of care, and are better supported to keep healthy and maintain your independence. The focus is on coordinated preventative care, and enabling you to take a more active role in your own health and choices.
Working across the NHS, local authority care and other local agencies, the aim is care which is organised around you and designed together with you.
