NHS reform: How many patients will benefit?

NHS reform: How many patients will benefit? Billed as the biggest national move to integrate care of any Western country, radical changes are afoot in parts of the NHS in England.

From this month, groups of local NHS and social care leaders are working together formally to devise appropriate care for individual patients, which will increasingly be provided away from hospitals.

But few are aware of these schemes and that's probably because, so far, they only affect a small minority of the population.

The so-called integrated care systems are up and running in 10 areas of England.

NHS leaders say more will come on stream soon with about 20% of the population covered by the end of the current financial year. BBC News
