||<p>The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, together with my officials,
met Hon Friends from Northamptonshire on 22 July to discuss the integration between
health and social care services in Northamptonshire. It was agreed that local leaders
from across health and social care in Northamptonshire should be invited to set out
clearly their ambitions for integration including formalised ways of working together.
I and my fellow Ministers look forward to hearing more from Northamptonshire health
bodies and councils when their plans are further developed.</p>
