Abstract

The dual combination of a physical long-term condition coupled with mental health illness can increase the complexities of effective patient care. Greater integration of services spanning the health and social care spectrum have the potential to reduce fragmentation, enhance communications and ultimately support patient care. This short article discusses the reasons for this being a worthwhile philosophy and the case for change.
