Resources for integrated care

To join up health and care services, partners across local systems will need to work together in new and different ways. National health and care bodies are working closely with all areas to support them to do this.

We aim to do everything we can to share learning about integrated care across the country.

Strengthening relationships across systems

A new support offer for health, care, and voluntary, community and social enterprise sector leaders has been launched to provide practical help with developing the relationships needed to transform health and care systems.

Jointly funded by NHS England and the National Lottery Community Fund, the offer – which is free to access – includes bespoke support, workshops, online resources, coaching and peer support. Find out how we can support you.

System support offer database

We have compiled this index of the different types of support currently offered by NHS England, NHS Improvement and other national bodies such as Health Education England and the Local Government Association.

Our aim is to connect systems, providers and individuals with organisations that offer support for system working, and to link systems with relevant support to improve health and care in an effective and sustainable way.

The database summarises each support offer and contact details for the team that provides it. It is updated regularly to reflect changes and additions.
