Welcome to Birmingham Better Care

Birmingham Better Care is an ambitious change programme between the NHS and City Council which aims to improve how health and social care services work together for the good of local people.

NHS and social care services in Birmingham are now caring for people with increasingly complex needs and multiple conditions. We need to do things differently to make sure we can provide the best care both now and in the future.

About Birmingham Better Care:

The Birmingham Better Care Fund is a collaborative programme. It is overseen by the Birmingham Better Care Board; which comprises leaders from Birmingham Health and Wellbeing Board, Birmingham City Council and the NHS.

The £5.3bn Better Care Fund (formerly the Integration Transformation Fund) was announced by the Government in the June 2013 spending round, to ensure a transformation in integrated health and social care. The Better Care Fund (BCF) is one of the most ambitious ever programmes across the NHS and Local Government. It creates a local single pooled budget to incentivise the NHS and local government to work more closely together around people, placing their well-being as the focus of health and care services.

The BCF is a critical part of the NHS two year operational plans and the five year strategic plans as well as local government planning.
