NHS England has recently changed the name of accountable care systems to integrated care systems, which describes more accurately the work being done in the ten areas of England operating in this way. The King’s Fund has updated its briefing which looks at work under way in these systems and at NHS England’s proposals for an accountable care organisation contract.
