How are ICSs made up?

The Health and Care Act 2022 sets out plans to now put Integrated Care Systems on a statutory footing, empowering them to better join up health and care services, improve population health and reduce health inequalities.

This will mean that from 1 July 2022, each ICS will be led by an NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB), an organisation with responsibility for NHS functions and budgets, and an Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), a statutory committee bringing together all system partners to produce a health and care strategy.

NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB)

NHS Humber and North Yorkshire ICB is a statutory organisation accountable for NHS spend and performance for 1.7million people across a region of 1500 square miles. The ICB is a core member of the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, alongside NHS providers, local councils, health and care providers and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.

Details for the Executive Team and board members of the ICB are available at www.humberandnorthyorkshire.icb.nhs.uk/board-members.

Integrated Care Partnership (ICP)

Integrated Care Partnerships will operate as a statutory committee, bringing together the NHS and local authorities as partners to focus more widely on health, public health and social care. ICPs will include representatives from the ICB, local authorities and other partners such as NHS providers, public health, social care, and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.

ICPs will be responsible for developing an integrated care strategy to set out how the wider health and wellbeing needs of the local population will be met. Our intention is to extend the responsibilities of the Humber and North Yorkshire ICP to reflect the core aims of the ICS, including improving our population’s health, address inequalities, and contribute to the wider socio-economic challenges we face, such as unemployment and securing inward investment.  

Other Important ICS features are:

Place-based partnerships between the NHS, local councils and voluntary organisations, residents, people who access services, carers and families – these partnerships will lead design and delivery of integrated services in their local area.   

Provider collaboratives: bringing NHS providers together across one or more ICSs, working with clinical networks, alliances and other partners, to benefit from working at scale.
