Peer support for local systems

We've teamed up with the Local Government Association (LGA), NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC), the NHS Confederation and their ICS network to offer a range of free, bespoke support for local health and care systems. Our aim is for local partners to forge new collaborative partnerships, build shared understanding and agree their collective next steps.

What is the peer support offer?

Building on two successful phases of peer support, we are offering a menu of peer support tailored to the needs of your local partnership. This includes one-to-one peer mentoring, peer-facilitated workshops and peer reviews of your system working (all of which can take place online). Requests for peer-led support can be made and delivered at any level, whether that be system, place or locality. 

Why choose us?

Jointly, our four organisations bring together expertise from providers of NHS care, local authorities and local commissioners, making us uniquely qualified and equipped to help you build effective relationships across organisational boundaries.

What can we help you achieve?

  • Progress partnership working at system, place and neighbourhood level through developing shared purpose, priorities, capabilities and governance arrangements.
  • Create a compelling narrative that sets out a shared vision with aligned priorities and commitment by all system partners to achieve better outcomes, building a case for further integration.
  • Identify and agree joint plans which may include how to share resources, explore new models of care or adopt an assets-based approach to service design and delivery which understands the local population need and resources. 
  • Address the wider determinants of health, creating the opportunities for health improvement, tackling health inequalities and promoting prevention
  • Successfully navigate legislative, performance and regulatory changes and challenges, as well as embedding gains made during COVID-19.

Making Sense of Integrated Care Systems joint webinar series 2021

The Local Government Association (LGA) , NHS Providers, NHS Clinical Commissioners and NHS Confederation are collaborating on a series of Tuesday lunchtime webinars, beginning in July and continuing in the autumn. For chairs, non-executive directors, councillors, local government officers and lay members. The webinars will explore the top issues facing leaders. Each webinar will include expert introductions to the theme alongside local leaders sharing their practical experiences and learning, to support local leaders to think through what it will take to make ICSs succeed.

Our next webinar will take place on Tuesday 5 October, from 12:45 - 14:00, and will focus on the recently published Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) engagement document. Jointly developed by the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement,  and the LGA, it is intended to help systems prepare to establish ICPs from April 2022, subject to the passage of the Health and Care Bill through Parliament.

Learn more about the webinar series here. Our previous webinars are available to watch here.
