MPs slam progress on integrating health and social careMPs slam progress on integrating health and social care

The Public Accounts Committee, which is responsible for overseeing government expenditure, has severely criticised the Government for its failure to deliver integrated health and social care across England.

Despite a name change to the Department of Health and Social Care, the Committee says the Government still lacks an effective overall strategy or plan to achieve its long-held aim to integrate these two sectors.

The Committee referred to the 12 white papers, green papers and consultations, and five independent reviews and consultations held over the last 20 years. With the current squeeze on local authority finance, the report concludes there is no realistic prospect of progress on integration.
