DAC Beachcroft Launches Integration Hub for Health Professionals

Published On: 28 October 2015

DAC Beachcroft has designed a resource to help senior leaders in the health and social care sector overcome the perceived legal, strategic and commercial barriers to integration when adopting new models of care.

In response to the NHS Five Year Forward View and the programme of Vanguards and new models of care, there are many questions around the design and implementation of these new models across the health and social care landscape. This includes how to overcome the perceived and real barriers to integrating across different organisations, and implementing new ways of working focussed on patient-centred care in a fragmented system of NHS commissioning and provision.

To tackle this issue, DAC Beachcroft's Health lawyers and Governance Advisory Practice have created the Integration Hub, an online resource focussing on three key areas: 

  1. An explanation of the New Models of Care, Commissioning Integration and Devolution;
  2. Understanding what the common legal, strategic and regulatory barriers are to implementing these; and
  3. Examples of our work with other clients where practical solutions have been found.

Organisations in the NHS are inherently curious about projects that are taking place in different parts of the country, and there is little publicly available as to the legal aspects of many of these transactions. The Integration Hub focusses on plugging that gap.

The launch of the Integration Hub is a first step, and we will build on this in the coming weeks, using the site as a platform for cross cluster initiatives to showcase our thought leadership in the re-design of the NHS.
