Health and Social Care Integration across the UK – Common Destination, Different speeds

Wednesday 9th November, The Academy, Glasgow (9am – 4pm)



Throughout all the countries of the UK, there is a policy convergence towards health and social care integration, and whilst being undertaken at different speeds and with differing legislative power, common imperatives are driving that change.


These are:

  • the drive toward the principle of right time, right place, right care
  • the demand to support independent living in a home based or homely setting
  • the shift in the balance of care from the acute to anticipatory and preventative care
  • the demographic challenges all four countries face – a 50% increase in the number of over 75s by 2030, within a climate of limited health budgets and resources.

Held just over seven months on from the launch of Scotland’s Health & Social Care Partnerships, the purpose of this conference is to share learning and expertise from across the UK to identify the key elements of what a successful approach to integration looks like from the policy, practice and patient experience perspectives. The event will feature keynote speakers from across the devolved nations outlining the different approaches taken, what’s worked and what hasn’t, and the lessons learned so far.
