This event write-up brings together ideas generated at a Reform and Social Enterprise policy roundtable. It is a high-level summary of the key themes raised none-of-which are attributable to either speaker or any attendee.

Reform was delighted to host a policy roundtable in late November 2021 entitled ‘Putting patients first: how integrated care systems can drive better outcomes’ with the generous support of Social Enterprise UK.
