Strong primary care is the cornerstone of health systems across Europe.  This means that features including structure, access, coordination, continuity, and comprehensiveness can be observed and monitored and are part of health care policy.

Increasingly it is recognised that integration between primary care and other parts of the health system can contribute to strengthening primary care, improving health outcomes and bringing cost-effective changes to the health service.

With contributions from world-leading primary care experts, this symposium will debate how integration between primary and community care in Europe can strengthen and improve health across different populations including refugees, older people and those with mental health difficulties. It will also consider how new care models can contribute and examine the wider global health implications.
