Integrated Care Pilots: Department of Health (2009)


In April 2009 the Department of Health launched a programme of 16 integrated care pilots designed to cross boundaries between primary, community, secondary and social care. The programme of Integrated Care Pilots (ICP) was a two-year initiative directed towards exploring different ways of providing health and social care services locally.

Stress was laced on the importance of improving local health and care services by offering personalised, flexible and high quality services, where the individual is at the centre and engaged in service organisation. Two specific projects involved:

  • Bournemouth and Poole.
  • Newquay.

GP-led service developments involved teams working across the health care boundaries i.e. hospital consultants GPs, community health staff and social care staff.
