Brent has become one of Labour’s 25 “Whole Person Care Innovation” Councils. When Andy Burnham visited Brent, it was recognised that the council is working hard to deliver an integrated health and social care service to people in Brent. Labour is working on legislation from now having already committed to repeal the competition elements of the Tory and Lib Dem top down reorganisation of the NHS. An independent commission led by Sir John Oldham has been set up to work on the fine details of legislation and of course, cost. Brent will be a part of this process, sharing experiences on barriers to integration for us locally. We will be telling the commission what we need in order to integrate effectively.
