Joining up care for people, places and populations

This is what our white paper aims to achieve by bringing together the NHS and local government to jointly deliver for local communities. It sets out a new approach with citizens and outcomes at its heart instead of endless form filling, unnavigable processes and a bureaucracy which sees too many people get lost in the system, not receiving the care they need. It is the start, not the end, of a new wave of reform which will both put power and opportunity in the hands of citizens and communities and build a state that is sustainable and just.
