We are the only independent, national network bringing together all 42 integrated care systems (ICSs).
We support them to achieve their four core purposes.
We do this by helping ICS leaders – from both integrated care boards (ICB) and integrated care partnerships (ICPs) – to exchange ideas, share experiences and challenges, and provide peer support.
We give our members a voice through our government influencing, policy work, media appearances and our work on key health and care developments.
We work closely with key partners such as the Local Government Association (LGA), National Voices and the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NACVA), reinforcing the role of ICSs as a partnership of equals.
Our networking forums, Spotlight sessions, dinners and annual conference provide unique opportunities for ICS leaders to discuss common challenges and learn from each other.
Our regular bulletins, digital communities, resources and website content keep members informed of the latest news, information and guidance.
“I really value the range of discussion and debate across all the issues which is backed up by high quality briefings and materials that really help me as an ICS leader to keep abreast of events in our fast moving world.”
Professor Stephen Eames, CBE, CEO at Humber, Coast and Vale ICS
