Next steps for the ICS

Pin It

The Government has set out plans for a parliamentary Bill to put ICSs on a statutory footing.   

The Bill will build on recommendations from the NHS to remove current legislative barriers to integration across health and social care organisations, and support joint-working between NHS and local authorities.   

We expect further guidance over the coming months about what this will mean for our local ICS. During 2021-22 we will need to create a transition plan that will set out our journey as we potentially take on greater responsibility by April 2022.
