Towards integrated care systems (ICSs) putting together the jigsaw puzzle

This content relates to the following topics:

The NHS long-term plan set out how local systems are designed and highlighted three important levels at which decisions are made: neighbourhoods, places and systems. This event demonstrates how functions at different levels can be designed to support and complement each other – a truly interconnected approach. You will learn how to harness the strength of place-based working to improve health and wellbeing and strengthen health and care services. 

As new forms of collaboration develop, and existing bodies – including integrated care systems, primary care networks, health and wellbeing boards (HWBs) and super-merged clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) – adapt accordingly, understanding the shifting landscape becomes even more important. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain expert guidance on the roles these bodies, organisations and individual leaders play in delivering integrated care. The agenda aims to support local leaders to think through how health and care partners can come together to set strategic direction, develop economies of scale and collectively improve care for people living locally.

With an emphasis on local systems needing to look beyond the narrow lens of the NHS to set out genuine place-based plans grounded in the needs of their local populations, this event will explore what meaningful involvement from local authorities and others looks like in practice. Pioneering local partnerships will share learning on connecting primary care networks to broader services including those provided by local government and voluntary sector organisations. 
The event will:

  • demonstrate the importance of place as a vital footprint for planning and delivering services, using the principle of subsidiarity to determine which functions should be performed across wider geographies and which should be done locally
  • share learning about bringing partners together around shared, system-wide objectives, and how to build trust and relationships by doing so
  • explore the part HWBs and local government have played to date in integrated care systems and how this might change in the future
  • update you on how the proposed NHS Integrated Care Bill is progressing and what this Bill would mean for local agencies.
