The Care Act

The Care Act introduces new responsibilities for local authorities. It also has major implications for adult care and support providers, people who use services, carers and advocates. This video, produced by the Social Care Institute for Excellence, provides an overview of the Act’s implications.


Sam’s story

The jargon of 'integrated care' is much-used in health policy and management circles. But why does 'integrated care' matter? And what will it mean for patients? This short animation created by The King's Fund aims to bring integrated care to life for anyone involved in improving patient care. If those working towards integrated care can share this vision with others in their local health and care system, then there is a real chance they can make integrated care happen.



Ada’s story

The Ada short animation was produced for the staff and stakeholder events and is available to watch here. It outlines some of the issues that the Integrated Care Programme is aiming to address.

Ada represents the familiar citizen and carer experience within our health and social care system both now and in the future. At her most vulnerable, Ada receives the care and treatment she requires but she is passed between different services, seen by different teams and quickly loses her independence and confidence. We believe that Ada’s story could be different.

With the development of an integrated care model, we will aim to ensure services are delivered collaboratively, linking health and social care provision to provide people like Ada with a better experience. Below is Ada's story part two, which aims to show how Ada's care could be provided when health and social care services are integrated.

Please share these ‘Ada’s Story’ animations with all those with an interest in the integration agenda. It’s a useful tool to explain and expose some of the issues we are trying to address and illustrate how integrated care could improve the experience of citizens in Nottingham City.
