The free to attend ‘Demonstration Events’ provided examples of good practice in relation to collaboration and integration between local government and NHS in Wales and elsewhere.

At the event attendees:

  • heard from key practitioners about how to implement good practice in integration across Wales;
  • engaged in open and creative conversations, to develop common understanding of the issues; and
  • explored the circumstances which both enable and prevent progress.
