IPC was commissioned by the Welsh Government to review recent literature, to assess the potential benefits of pooled funds between local authorities and health organisations. The report identifies learning on key factors, which can make pooled funding arrangements successful in helping to secure better health, care and wellbeing outcomes. Around 50 articles and papers were studied to identify key characteristics and different forms of pooled funds, links to related levers to promote integration, and possible risks to successful delivery and management processes.
