Integrated Care Systems (ICSs)

Lead: NHS England

Period: 26th Nov 2020 - 8th Jan 2021

NHS England ran a consultation inviting views from patients, NHS staff, partner organisations, and interested members of the public on its proposals for building strong and effective Integrated Care Systems (ICSs)

Brief description of project

At NHS England’s board meeting held on Thursday 26 November 2020, a proposal was presented that set out future plans on Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) so that they become legal organisations.

The NHS England paper ‘Integrating care: Next steps to building strong and effective integrated care systems across England’, would see Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) being incorporated into integrated care systems. The one covering our place is the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership. Find out more about CCGs on our website.

Who did we speak to?

We wanted to hear from as many people and organisations as possible.

What and how did we ask?

NHS England were asking for feedback on their proposals. You can view their proposals in full by following the button below:

You were able to feedback via an online survey or via email.

The NHS Leeds CCG collectively responded to the consultation as an organisation to ensure the priorities and work completed over the CCGs life were taken into account and ensured the best outcomes for the people of Leeds and the West Yorkshire area.

What will we do?

NHS England intends to share feedback with other health and care stakeholders, including the Department of Health and Social Care, to further develop their ideas. They will not include personal data in the information they share.

We will post the results and any reports from the consultation on this page when they are available.
