Care Quality Commission (CQC) Reading Local System Review – Final Report
The Reading Health and Social Care System comprises not just Reading Borough Council, but also Berkshire West CCG, The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (BHFT) and the South Central Ambulance Service – in addition to the providers of health and social care services within the wider marketplace (including voluntary and community-sector organisations).
The NHS Long Term Plan
The NHS is asked to work at locality level with partners in local government, community health services, the voluntary sector and communities themselves to develop PCNs. The intention is that all local services will operate on a neighbourhood footprint increasing the coordination and integration of care for residents.
