Integrated Care Partnership (ICP)

An Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) is a statutory committee jointly convened by Local Authorities and the NHS, comprised of a broad alliance of ORGANISATIONS and other representatives as equal partners concerned with improving the health, public health and social care services provided to their population.

Every Integrated Care Partnership works alongside an Integrated Care Board to form an Integrated Care System.

Integrated Care Partnerships are responsible for developing an integrated care strategy setting out how the wide-raging health needs of the local population will be met, accounting for any relevant joint strategic needs assessments produced by Health and Wellbeing Boards, and involving Local Healthwatch, Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector, and PEOPLE and communities living in the area.

Integrated Care Partnerships do not directly commission SERVICES.
