This timely and much needed text book provides a systematic assessment of recent policy developments across the UK and introduces the different models of integration which currently operate - from structural integration in Northern Ireland to health and care partnerships in Scotland. It examines the achievements of integrated working, showing how it can lead to improvements in the quality of services and access to services, as well as create cost efficiencies. It also considers  barriers to integration and draw comparisons with experiences in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe to identify lessons for practice in the UK.

Supported throughout by case studies and a wealth of illustrative material - including charts and diagrams - this is key reading for students taking degree programmes and foundational qualifications in health and social care, or related degrees in social policy, health studies, social work and nursing.
