Intellectual disability is a very interesting area to explore and to understand the design and implementation of person-centred integrated care due to its complexity in the classification and assessment, interventions, care delivery and policy planning. There is a significant ambiguity in the conceptualisation and classification of this health condition and disparities emerge between the health sector and the social and education sectors on this condition and these disparities have significant implications for service planning and delivery. The early development of strategies of both person-centred care and integrated care in this field may contribute to a better knowledge of the challenges of developing integrated care both in the interaction between primary care and secondary care and in the integration of health and social care.
