Progress on integrated personal commissioning

NHS England and the Local Government Association met this week with the nine areas pioneering blended comprehensive health and social care funding.

The integrated personal commissioning (IPC) programme was set out in October 2014 and went live in April 2015 with the first wave of nine demonstrator sites – enabling over 10,000 high-need services users to gain control of their own integrated health and social care budgets.

 

The sites have been busy consolidating plans over the last two months in order to begin turning theory into local action.

 

Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, and Carolyn Down, chief executive of the Local Government Association met with heads of CCGs, NHS providers, local authorities and voluntary sector organisations that have signed up to be part of the programme.
