Our ICS Network is supported by a team of staff who lead on communications, policy and member engagement, working closely with all our membership to ensure their views are represented at a national level.
The ICS Network is led by our ICS Network Advisorate, made of up 21 members. They represent ICSs from across all seven NHS England and NHS Improvement regions, ensuring a diverse mix of ICSs and a balance of skills and experience.
The ICS Network Advisorate provides strategic oversight of the ICS Network, helping to shape its priorities and future direction and ensuring that it is able to build a strong and effective national voice for its ICS members and meets bi-monthly.
“The network is able to provide a level of independent support that is invaluable as we all seek to drive our system plans forward within this new landscape.”
