Health and care leaders from across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have today welcomed the appointment of John Govett as their new Independent Chair.
Greater integration between health and care services
“Our plans to transform health and care detail the need for greater integration between health and care services. The results of our ongoing engagement with the public, clinicians, health campaigners, and people working across health and care, show support for a more joined-up delivery. “There has always been a boundary between people who buy health and care services and those who provide them. Creating an Integrated Care System gives us an opportunity to bring commissioners and providers together and work together with the common aim of putting people before organisational priorities, which can only be for the benefit of everyone in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. “NHS Kernow will consider the plans through its Governing Body, alongside discussion with our member practices.”
