James Pollitt, Assistant Director of Strategic Development at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust, and Jean Templeton, Chief Executive at the youth homeless charity St Basils, discuss how the NHS in their ICS is working with partners to enable social and economic development, and why other systems should be following suit. The lively discussion sees James and Jean discuss how partnership working across the system is tackling health inequalities head on, how empty NHS buildings are being utilised more effectively, and how the local economy has been strengthened for the benefit of the whole community. As Jean puts it, “INtegrated care is about keeping people IN”, and making sure no one gets left out.
