Views of people who use services
 IRISS: Service Users and Carers are not concerned with
the Integration of Health and Social Care as such
 National Voices: People want co-ordination, not
necessarily integration
 SCIE: Outcomes as defined by people who use services
may differ from policy and practice imperatives and are
a crucial aspect of understanding the effectiveness of
integrated services

Challenges / Opportunities
Affirm Social Services values and identity,
promoting a collective social responsibility within an
Integrated service
Enable respectful, meaningful co-production with
people and communities to establish what matters
at local level
Develop models of participative leadership, vertical
as well as horizontal integration
What does it take to achieve this?
• Shared vision - centrality of better outcomes for

• Mutual willingness to change and compromise
• Contribution over attribution
• Workforce identity defined by what we are trying to
achieve rather than by who we are
• Organisational identity defined within wider system
