Health and Care Bill receives Royal Assent

Crest for UK government
The Health and Care Bill is now the Health and Care Act 2022 after being passed by parliament and given the Royal Assent.
This means that ICSs will be on a statutory footing from 1 July 2022, as well as a number of requirements for data collection from social care providers being put into force.
We will have a full briefing once the final version of the Act has been published.
Read about this and more in our weekly Wednesday update.
