NHS study group visits Gesundes Kinzigtal
A group of GPs, healthcare professionals, social workers and senior managers from England visited Baden Württemberg in Germany on 24-26 February 2016 to learn more about the Gesundes Kinzigtal Model of integrated care provision. The Colleagues from Gesundes Kinzigtal showed them how the model works across professional and organisational boundaries for the benefit of the patient and population health. The visit was organised by the NHS European Office and NHS England’s new models of care team and formed part of the European Office’s programme to help NHS colleagues develop links and share learning with organisations at the leading edge of integrated care in Europe.
For some years now a lot of international groups have visited Gesundes Kinzigtal, for instance from the International Foundation for Integrated Care, Saltro in the Netherlands and SaluToMed in Switzerland. And the 7th of December a group from the Advisory Board Company in the USA is going to visit Gesundes Kinzigtal.
