Start with the person and work backwards
On Feb 1st 2021 the Institute of Healthcare Management changed it’s name to the Institute of Health and Social Care Management. Recognising that to be truly person led, health and care need to come together – to integrate and collaborate in real terms.
Politicians, policy-makers, leaders and front-line colleagues, we all have a responsibility to stop looking for a boundary between health and social care, leading the way to demolish the silos and empower the delivery of seamless care.
It is also time that social care has an equal seat at the table, adequate funding and parity of esteem. Let's talk and act together!
