PSNC Briefing 050/16: Integrated primary and acute care systems (PACS) – Describing the care model and the business model (October 2016)

In January 2015, the NHS invited individual organisations and partnerships, including those with the voluntary sector to apply to become vanguard sites for the New Models of Care Programme, one of the first steps towards delivering the NHS Five Year Forward View (5YFV) and supporting improvement and integration of services.

One of the vanguard types is the integrated primary and acute care system (PACS), which aims to join up primary care, hospital, community, mental health and social care services to improve the health and wellbeing of the whole population.

This PSNC Briefing summarises NHS England’s document, Integrated primary and acute care systems (PACS) – Describing the care model and the business model, which describes a framework covering the core elements of the population-based accountable care model and the options for commissioning and providing a PACS. It will be of particular interest to LPC members who have PACS being developed in their area.
