The London Health and Care Integration Collaborative was established in July 2013. It brings together leaders from health and social care across London to champion and drive forwards progress on integrated care in London.
The overarching aim of the collaborative is to develop collective leadership to support the pace and scale of progress on integration across London in order to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for people and efficiency across the system.
Meetings of the collaborative take place on a quarterly basis and are chaired by Will Tuckley, Chief Executive of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Members include representatives from NHS England, London Office of CCGs and CCG sector representatives, local authorities and NHS provider organisations.
The collaborative programme is supported by a small team of officers from London Councils, NHS England (London) and the London Social Care Partnership (LSCP).
Workshops and events
In addition to more formal meetings, the collaborative also offers and promotes a range of workshops and events aimed at practitioners and managers working to implement integrated care on the ground.
The collaborative is keen to encourage local authorities and CCGs who would like to host an open day about their work locally or to organise a workshop either on their own or in partnership with other localities.
5 October 2015, the London Health and Care Integration Collaborative hosted an event with SCIE (Social Care Institute for Excellence) and PPL on the theme of joint working to deliver better care.
