Integration

This report brings together the learning to date from seven key areas that have focused on the integration of health and care services. The focus goes beyond the narrow definition of health and care to include more preventative approaches including services such as housing, social and community activity.

Accountable Care Partnerships (ACPs)

The concept behind an ACP is that a group of providers agree to work together to deliver care for a defined population by forming an ACP. They will be collectively responsible for commissioning services to deliver against a set of outcomes, designed by the ACP. Providers will work under a single contract with a single pooled budget to take joint responsibility for delivering services.

Compact

What is the Compact?

The Compact is an agreement between national Government and the Voluntary and Community Sector. It was originally developed in November 1998 to improve the relationship between the two parties, and was made up of codes of good practice, outlining the way that both sectors work together.
