The Shadow Health Secretary, Andy Burnham MP today 24th January 2013, gave a speech to the King’s Fund outlining Labour’s vision for an integrated health and social care system that would take a holistic approach and deal with ‘whole-person care’.  This would be good for patients and their families as it would provide a single point of contact to deal with the varying needs of the patient and would also be an efficient use of resources.  Currently the physical, mental and social care of the patient are provided through three different systems.
