A unique and ground-breaking plan to integrate health and social care
Surrey Heartlands is known as an ‘Integrated Care System’ – a more evolved partnership where health and local Government are taking a collective responsibility for health and social care. There are currently just ten integrated care systems across England.
Through our unique devolution agreement, we will have greater control over budgets and accountability of the decisions we make locally giving us a real opportunity to maximise benefits for local people.
Our ground-breaking agreement outlines how partners will work together to improve the health outcomes of the 850,000 people living in Surrey Heartlands. It also means more local accountability for the spending of health and social care budgets.
