During this live streamed event, a panel of specialists and GPs from Oxford's integrated diabetes care programme will discuss the barriers and facilitators they have experienced during their journey towards integration, and consider the wider lessons for integration in the context of diabetes and other long-term conditions.
Integrated care is key to addressing the challenges currently facing the NHS. In its 2013 report, Future hospital: Caring for medical patients, the Future Hospital Commission recommended greater integration as a means to ensuring that care is both person-centred and locally provided.
Since then, the RCP’s Future Hospital Programme (FHP) has been supporting integrated care through four development sites and an integrated diabetes care programme in Oxfordshire.
