Integrated care value case toolkit

The LGA has partnered with NHS England, The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS), Monitor, NHS Confederation and the Department of Health (DH) to deliver a programme of work carried out by Integrating Care.

The toolkit should enable Health and Wellbeing Boards and local partners to understand the evidence and impact of different integrated care models on service users, as well as the associated impact on activity and cost to different parts of the health and care system.

Value cases for integrated care

This will pull together the overall evidence for integrated care and flag key lessons that will apply to all areas and audiences within a locality.

Please use this template if you have an innovative and Pioneering approach to integrated care in your area that you wish to share with other areas.

Modelling tool

This modelling tool helps map the impact of integrated care for local areas. This tool will help your area understand the resource implications for implementing integrated care locally. It is fully editable, and pre-populated with available data for your convenience and speed of use. 


Evidence for Integrated Care

This is a comprehensive review of all the evidence that the national partners are aware of around integrated care.

Online forums for ongoing Integrated Care Support

Integrated Care Knowledge Hub Page
Knowledge hub will continue to exist for current members for now but we would encourage people to use ICASE once it has been fully developed and tested with local areas.
