This article's aim is to consider the implications for integrated care in England of the “community right to challenge” provisions of the Localism Act 2011.
The article's approach is an analysis of the Localism Act 2011, secondary legislation made under that Act and a review of the existing literature on the Localism Act 2011.
The Localism Act 2011 community right to challenge provisions have the potential to lead to innovative ways of providing services but they also have the potential to undermine or inhibit integrated care arrangements.
The article analyses the provisions of the Localism Act 2011 together with the provisions of secondary legislation which provide for its detailed operation.
