About Integrated Care Pioneers

Integrated Care Pioneers were local health and care systems selected to act as exemplars, demonstrating the use of ambitious and innovative approaches to efficiently deliver integrated care.

These 25 integrated care pioneer sites (the pioneers) developed and tested new and different ways of joining up health and social care services across England, utilising the expertise of the voluntary and community sector, with the aim of improving care, quality and effectiveness of services being provided.

The pioneer learning community consisted of this group of areas which focused on driving tangible health and care improvements at local level. They supported the rapid dissemination, promotion and uptake of lessons across the country and received support to break down barriers from national partners.

Integrated Care Pioneer annual reports

Annual reports were produced for the first two years of the programme to share the progress that was being made.
