On the day briefing: The draft Integrated Care Provider contract
NHS England (NHSE) is consulting on the draft Integrated Care Provider (ICP) contract. The ICP contract, which is a variant of the NHS Standard Contract, is the first commissioning contract designed specifically to promote an integrated service model including primary care, wider NHS and some local authority services.
The draft ICP contract has developed out of work to implement the Multispeciality Community Provider (MCP_ care model, one of the six 'vanguard' new care models. The previous iteration of this draft ICP contract was referred to as the draft Accountable Care Organisation (ACO) contract.
To date, Dudley CCG has been most explicit about its intentions to make use of the draft ICP contract (subject to the outcome of the consultation).
This briefing sets out the key features of the draft ICP contract. The full consultation package including the draft ICP contract can also be found here.Download
