In Autumn 2022 a series of five Integrated Care System Roadshows were held across the country.
Each event saw local ICS leaders and a broad spectrum of health and care stakeholders come together for discussion and debate.
Held in Leeds, London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Bristol, the roadshows were a unique opportunity for health and care stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities of Integrated Care Systems. They also allowed local people to gain a better understanding of what Integrated Care means for them.
Topics of discussion included:
- Ensuring ICSs come to represent a ‘partnership of equals’ between different parts of the health and care system
- Considering data sharing as a duty of care
- Prevention, early access and health inequalities
- What does ‘good’ look like for integrated care?
Dr Tracey Vell MBE, Chief Officer of Greater Manchester Primary Care Provider Board and Executive Lead for Primary Care, NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care was a speaker at the Manchester Roadshow.
Dr Vell told delegates: “People around the boardroom must better understand what other sectors are, what they can do, and what restrictions they operate under. Integrated care is about bringing the voice of all colleagues in primary care, in the voluntary sector and in local government to unite and to actually connect the frontline to strategy.”
