iHV has submitted its response to the Integration of Primary and Community Care Committee – a Lords Select Committee.
The Committee, appointed to consider the integration of primary and community care, invited views on the delivery of integrated primary and community care services as part of its inquiry and was particularly keen to receive submissions from those with direct experience of accessing or delivering primary and community care services.
The inquiry was set up to explore improved ways to integrate the delivery of effective primary and community care services. It will consider the challenges facing the sector and any barriers preventing further integration. The success of existing models of integration will be examined, including the role of Primary Care Networks and Integrated Care Systems. Access to primary and community care services will also be considered, as well as accountability and decision-making.
