Integrated care systems (ICSs) are partnerships of health and care organisations, local government and the voluntary sector. They exist to improve population health, tackle health inequalities, enhance productivity and help the NHS support broader social and economic development. They will take on statutory form following the implementation of proposed legislation from April 2022 and will comprise an Integrated Care Board (ICB) which will take on CCGs’ functions and broader strategic responsibility for setting healthcare strategies for the system. The ICB will work with an Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) committee formed jointly with Local Authority Partners. Together the ICP and ICB will become the ICS. We are looking for candidates who will develop these systems and, subject to legislation, support the proposed establishment of each system’s new statutory arrangements.
Originally created as part of the NHS’s Long-Term Plan, there are 42 ICSs covering the whole of England, each serving between 500,000 and three million people. Each will hold substantial budget for commissioning high quality patient care and driving health and care improvements for their communities. The chair will lead a unitary board which will bring together leaders from across all parts of the NHS, local government, social care and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. Appointments will be approved by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
These are significant, high-profile roles at the cutting edge of public sector reform. To succeed you will need:
We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve.
We prioritise Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, team health and wellbeing and the principles of kind leadership in our ‘ways of working’. All post holders will have a key role in nurturing this culture.
