NHS England working in partnership with integrated care system (ICS) leads and representatives, has devised actions to help systems develop plans that can support people who are taking medicines associated with dependence and withdrawal symptoms. The actions will support ICSs to deliver on their 4 key objectives of:
improving outcomes in population health and healthcare
tackling health inequalities in outcomes, experience and access
enhancing productivity and value for money
helping the NHS support broader social and economic development.
