Government 'to invest £3.8 billion into health plan'

The 14 new health and care initiatives are a "starting gun" for joined up care in the NHS and the Government has started plans to invest £3.8 billion into integrated health and care services, Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb said.

This is just the start - we want to make integrated care the norm across the country and planning has already begun in order to invest £3.8 billion into integrated health and care services in 2015/16.

"We need to preserve the NHS, and through an integrated approach we can achieve better results for patients and make the money go further, whilst making necessary savings. These fourteen pioneers will test new ways of working for everyone to learn from, and drive forward genuine change for the future."
