Guidance on the preparation of integrated care strategies1 August 2022
We are delighted that, as part of advocacy and lobbying within a coalition of charities, the DHSC guidance for Integrated Care Partnerships on the preparation of Integrated Care Strategies, now has a keen and appropriate focus on children!
This guidance marks a key step in ensuring that babies, children, young people and families will be prioritised in the new Integrated Care Systems. Amongst other provisions, the guidance sets out that engagement on strategies should be inclusive of children, young people and their families, including new and expectant parents. There is also an explicit section on how babies, children, young people and families should be considered in the content of the strategies.
