Get Involved

When the ICB launched in July 2022, it adopted its Engagement Strategy – ‘Working with People and Communities’, which outlines our approach to involving local communities in the planning and delivery of health and care services across the Humber and North Yorkshire region.

  • Legislation – Health & Care Bill 2022; Equality Act 2010
  • The NHS Constitution – this sets out the rights for patients, public, and staff – including the right to be involved in decisions about services the NHS runs or pays for.
  • National Guidance from NHS England and the Government
  • Integrated Care System guidelines

Involvement is not one size fits all and we are committed to ensuring conversations happen with local people about issues which are important to them, in a way that supports and empowers them. We will aim for conversations to be as inclusive as possible, and this will include working closely with voluntary, community, and social enterprise partners as well as local Healthwatch organisations.

We will also work with people and communities to co-design the way we involve you in our processes to ensure that everyone who wants to can have a voice, and that these are at the centre of decision-making and governance, at every level of the health and care partnership.

Engagement will develop on a case-by-case basis to meet the needs of the project or proposal. Sometimes this will occur across all six places which make up Humber and North Yorkshire, and sometimes engagement will be exclusively within place. Which model is most appropriate will be determined by what best meets the needs of each engagement objectives.

Humber and North Yorkshire consists of 6 individual ‘places’: East Riding, Hull, North East Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire, and York. Each of these have their own membership schemes which allow people who reside in or access health and care services in those areas, to be more involved in having their say. You can find out more about our membership schemes, and the opportunities to get involved in each of our places, by clicking on the relevant link below.

Engaging with our communities

Our plans and projects will only be successful if they are informed by the needs, wants and desires of the local people they seek to serve.

We are committed to involving local people as far as possible in the work that we are doing. We will strive to be as open and transparent as possible in all that we do.
