LGA: The journey to integration – Learning from seven leading localities: this independent report published by the LGA details the experience of seven localities in developing integrated care – Leeds, Northumberland, Nottingham City, Pennine Care, Salford, Torbay and Tower Hamlets. It examines each against a range of factors, including care model, leadership, workforce, payment model and information flow. It concludes that it is possible to have significant impact in terms of improved health outcomes and financial sustainability, and sets out the key lessons for other localities to consider in embarking on integration themselves.
