SIR NICHOLAS SOAMES’S QUESTION ON THE INTEGRATION OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

6th February 2018

Sir Nicholas Soames's Question to the Minister of State for Health and Social Care Services at Oral Questions - 6th February, 2018.

Does my hon. Friend agree that the integration of health and social care is so important to the future success of the NHS that everything needs to be done to speed up the programme to integrate them better? Will she join me in encouraging a speedier approach to that method in Surrey, Sussex and Kent?

My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. The better care fund is already having a fantastic impact in the area. We are developing metrics for assessing progress on integration by local area, particularly at the interface of health and social care. We need to proceed with this as rapidly as possible, and I am sure that with his backing, that will happen in his local area.
