The Whole Systems Integrated Care (WSIC) programme is a large-scale integrated care scheme operating in North West London, bringing together commissioners and providers from the health, social care, mental health, voluntary and community sectors, across eight local authority/CCG areas. The Nuffield Trust and the London School of Economics and Political Science were commissioned by Imperial College Health Partners to undertake an evaluation of the WSIC programme.
The WSIC programme established nine local initiatives (‘Early Adopters’) to pilot and implement the programme at the local level. This is a survey is of the Early Adopter steering committee members which was fielded between 13 November and 17 December 2014. The survey explored members’ perceptions of their early adopter’s progress, the usefulness of the WSIC Integrated Care Toolkit and its design process, as well as different groups’ involvement in the project. A total of 109 steering committee members responded to the survey giving an overall response rate of 60 per cent.
