Health and Social Care White Paper

A White Paper, published in 2006, which outlined integrated health and social care systems, signalling the central UK Government’s strategic intention to shift the emphasis of health and social care from acute and intensive interventions towards community and preventative services. It was unprecedented in that it addressed these issues across health and social care in the same White Paper.
