The Health and Care Bill builds on the proposals for legislative change set out by NHS England in its long-term plan while aiming to incorporate lessons learnt from the pandemic that will benefit both staff and patients.
The Bill will ensure each part of England has an Integrated Care Board and an Integrated Care Partnership responsible for bringing together local NHS and local government, such as social care, mental health services and public health advice, to deliver joined-up care for its local population.
