Did you know that we have a new Health and Care Act (2022)?

In April 2022 a new Health and Care Act was passed. The main aim of the act is to establish a legislative framework for collaboration and partnership work across health and social care sectors, so service users can experience more integrated care.

For more detail on this Act, see the King's Fund page - The Health and Care Act: six key questions

Watch this great animation from the King's Fund, to discover the key organisations that make up the NHS and how they can collaborate with partners in the health and social care system to deliver joined-up care.
