This debate pack provides an overview of structural reforms that have taken place within the NHS in England, including the major reorganisation of the NHS under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The paper also describes Government efforts to better integrate services, as set out in NHS England’s Five-year Forward View, and via Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and other new care models.

This pack also summarises some recent publications that have examined recent reforms. This includes the Health and Social Care Committee’s report into Integrated Care, the National Audit Office’s investigation into Health and social care integration, and a collection of essays on previous NHS reorganisations published by the Nuffield Trust ahead of the publication of the NHS long-term plan.
