The ICS and the VCSE – the MOU

The ICS in Northamptonshire became a formal construct on the 1st of July 2022. NHS guidance requires a Memorandum of Understanding between the system (the ICS) and the VCSE. This is effectively a set of high-level principles about how the system and the VCSE should work together.  The Northamptonshire draft MOU can be seen here

It is envisaged that this MOU will be signed off by both the North and West Health and Wellbeing Boards in September of 2022.

VIN would encourage all VCSE organisations to read and understand the shared principles and undertakings which form part of this document.

Any comments about the MOU should be sent to the VIN CEO at by close of play on the 5th of August 2022.
