Virtual conference icon green

From 1 July 2022, integrated care systems (ICSs) will be established as statutory bodies in all parts of England, with place-based partnerships also taking on a central role in the new system. As ICSs begin the next stage of development, how can all involved ensure they are truly different to what has come before and have a meaningful impact?

We ran this virtual conference, which celebrated the progress that ICSs have made so far, across four half-days, from 23–26 May. Sharing the vision and journey of established ICSs, this conference explored how place-based partnerships, newly established relationships and systems leadership can leverage opportunities, and navigate the risks and challenges, to deliver a step change in health and wellbeing outcomes in population health.
