Health Select Committee’s visit to Copenhagen and Stockholm

From the 18 to 21 November 2012, the Health Select Committee of which Valerie is a member visited Copenhagen and Stockholm to look at integrated care.

Valerie said:

“This was a good opportunity to meet our Danish and Swedish counterparts to discuss and learn lessons about their integrated healthcare system.

“At the Danish Ministry for Social Affairs we were given an overview of elderly care and visited 2 care homes to see the policy in action.

“In Sweden we visited the Social and Health Ministry and a visit to a care home. We also met our counterparts on the Swedish Health Committee.
