Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System

Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System

The Health and Care Act 2022 created a statutory basis for Integrated Care Systems and established Integrated Care Boards and Integrated Care Partnerships across England from 1st July 2022.

Integrated Care Partnership

Is a statutory committee, bringing together a broad alliance of organisations and representatives concerned with improving the care, health and wellbeing of the population, jointly convened by local authorities and the NHS. The Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) provides a forum for NHS leaders and local authorities to come together, as equal partners, with important stakeholders from across the system and community. Together, the ICP will generate an integrated care strategy to improve health and care outcomes and experiences for their populations, for which all partners will be accountable. ICPs will be required to develop an integrated care strategy to address the broad health and social care needs of the population within the ICP’s area, including determinants of health such as employment, environment, and housing issues. ICBs and local authorities will be required by law to have regard to the ICP’s strategy when making decisions, commissioning and delivering services.  Click here to learn more about the Suffolk and North East Essex ICP.

Integrated Care Board

The Integrated Care Board (ICB) of this system is NHS Suffolk and North East Essex. It is a statutory body, that is responsible for commissioning healthcare services in the ICS area, bringing the NHS together locally to improve population health and care. The ICB takes on the NHS planning functions previously held by CCGs plus new responsibilities delegated from NHS England and NHS Improvement. Each ICB will produce a five-year plan for how NHS services will be delivered to meet local needs and this plan must take account of an integrated care strategy, setting out how the wider health needs of the local population should be met.

Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care system launch “Green Plan”

Tackling climate change in health and social care provides not only an opportunity to think differently together, but also an opportunity to do things differently together. A system-wide approach can deliver benefits in terms of partnership working, collaboration and efficiency, ensuring we tackle the challenges of the climate emergency and improve the wider determinants of health.  The Green Plan outlines the ambition that the ICB has to drive and support the wider ICS partners in addition to its own targets.

Our three local alliances
