Abstract

The way we deliver healthcare in the UK is changing, joining up care between the different health sectors has created a new field of “integrated care”. Recent publications from the Kings Fund, Nuffield Trust and National Voices has shown that it is difficult to define “integrated care”. This project surveyed health professionals on their views about integrated care and the value of integrated respiratory specialists.
