This paper reports on experience in making use of Health Act flexibilities and care trusts. Three areas were chosen for study because they were known to have attached priority to health and social care integration and were at the leading edge of development. Drawing on discussions at a series of seminars at which the experience of each area was presented and reviewed, the paper identifies a number of emerging lessons for the future of integration in a context in which the Government has established a Minister‐led review to explore what more needs to be done to encourage integration.
