New report: HIV and Integrated Care – Can STPs deliver?

Effective healthcare must begin with the needs of the individual patient (whole person care) rather than with the convenience of the separate elements of the healthcare system.

But the scale of the cuts to public health funding raises questions over what more could have been done up until now and whether the current encouraging performance can be maintained.
