Demographic changes, the increasing demand for care and funding constraints have heightened pressures on our health and social care systems. Professor Croisdale-Appleby traces the development of integrating health and social care in England over the past 20 years; from ‘Improving Health for Mrs Smith’ in Torbay to the work of the current Vanguards and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships. He contrasts this experience with international examples and explores the challenges presented by integration, including leadership. He examines the need for new roles which will extend the capacity of health and care professionals to deliver the services that must be developed to serve emerging and future needs.
