Integrated Care Strategies

Every Integrated Care System must produce an Integrated Care Strategy. This Strategy helps the Integrated Care Board to build a 5-year Health Plan for its communities. In Northamptonshire, the Integrated Care Strategy will be prepared by the Integrated Care Partnership or ICP. Guidance on what should be included has just been produced by the Department of Health and Social Care (or DHSC) and can be viewed here:

The timelines to produce these strategies are incredibly tight. In Northamptonshire, the strategy is likely to be a high-level document with a series of high-level aspirations which can be modified over time within the Local Area Partnerships or LAPS.
