3. Who should read this framework?
The framework is for anyone with an interest in health and social care services. In particular, health and social care professionals, including clinicians, GPs, nurses and Allied Health Professionals involved in the planning and delivery of health and social care services, and importantly, people who use services, their carers and their families.
This framework will help to inform how services are planned across the whole pathway of care, to ensure a focus on individuals, and also the practice changes within integrated multidisciplinary teams, that will make a difference to the care people receive.
This framework should be read alongside the guidance on the integration planning and delivery principles.
