Why we formed?

In December 2018, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare published a report entitled "Integrated Healthcare: Putting the pieces together".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the key recommendations in the report was that "professional associations representing complementary, traditional and natural healthcare should work more closely together on common issues, to share knowledge and experience. A formal collaborative should be established which brings together major associations to take the field forward collectively."

 

It is from this that the IHC was formed, with the aim of achieving better health outcomes through greater integration of healthcare services.

 

The IHC builds on over 30 years of work and collaboration between the former All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare and the leading organisations in the field.
