Information (Integration)

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress has been made in encouraging pilot projects between local authorities and primary care trusts to develop an integrated approach to information as set out in the “Our Health Our Care Our Say” White Paper; and if she will make a statement. (92286)

The Department is currently developing options for pilot projects between primary care trusts and local authorities and has identified a number of potential partners for these pilots. We are aware of a number of existing models of good practice in integrated information provision which we will evaluate. The development of the pilots will also be informed by the findings of the review of the provision of health and social care information, which is also a White Paper commitment.
