Integrated care partnership (ICP): engagement summary

In September 2021, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) published the ICP engagement document which set out the role that ICPs will play within statutory ICSs. Between September and December 2021, DHSC, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I), and the Local Government Association (LGA) engaged with a range of stakeholders to understand how systems are developing their ICP arrangements. This briefing summarises the key findings from their latest paper, published yesterday, 23 March 2022, which includes the themes from that engagement process and key actions for systems. Please contact Leo Ewbank, policy advisor (systems) (, if you have any questions.
