  • people working in Health Boards and Local Authorities, who will need to support and help implement the requirements on Integration Authorities to establish, support and understand activity in localities;
  • clinicians and other professionals, for whom localities provide a real opportunity to contribute directly to the shape of local service provision;
  • people working in multi-disciplinary teams;
  • members of strategic planning groups;
  • people working in the third and independent sectors who provide a range of social care services for people within localities; and
  • people in local communities, who can get involved in localities in order to support and influence the design and delivery of health and social care services.
