Region: Europe Toolkit Empowering and engaging people and communities, Strengthening governance and accountability, Reorienting the model of care Source: NHS England

A new framework to help local areas establish a single primary and acute care system (PACS) has been published by NHS England, as well as another for improving the lives of care home residents.

Under a PACS, hospital, primary, community, mental health and social care services align their goals and incentives to improve the health and wellbeing of the population.

The announcement comes following the publication in July of a framework for the multispecialty community provider (MCP) model.
