Our brand new ICS Communications Toolkit, published today, has been developed following feedback from members and has been designed to support our ICS Network members and their partners, to communicate effectively about what ICSs are and the changes they will make to patient care.

We engaged with the Local Government Association and Healthwatch England when producing the materials, which are all online and can be found here:

Integrated care communications toolkit

The online toolkit includes a number of elements including:

  • Jargon Buster
  • FAQs
  • Slide decks
  • Animated videos
  • Case studies
  • Podcasts
  • Links to other useful resources

It has been designed primarily to help ICS communications and engagement leads to communicate with key external audiences including patients and the public, local authority members and employees, and Non-Executive Directors.
