Integration, funding and resource flows in the care system

This theme looks at arrangements for raising funds for social and health care and how the funds are used to provide services. For example, we explore how the costs of providing long-term care will be met in future as population needs grow; the way in which better co-ordination of health and social care services may improve outcomes for patients, as well as reducing costs; the relationship between informal and formal care; and the determinants of health care expenditure.
