Integrated Care Systems (ICSs)

Lead: NHS England

Period: 26th Nov 2020 - 8th Jan 2021

NHS England is running 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, a proposal was presented that set out future plans on integrated care systems 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 will we speak to?

Please note that the consultation survey does ask you to provide your name and asks in what capacity you are responding. Your response should be done as an individual unless you are representing your organisation. However, there is no specific drop-down for individuals so you may want to put ‘other’ and ‘individual’ in the secondary box. If you are uncomfortable using your real name you may wish to consider using your initials.

You can also send your feedback to

Please do respond by the closing date of Friday 8 January 2021.

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.
