NHS Providers response to a CQC consultation on their new ICS assessment reports

We have recently responded to a CQC consultation on the usefulness and content of their new integrated care system (ICS) assessment reports. We welcome the broad intentions of the assessments, as described in their interim guidance, and the opportunity to explore to what extent ICS' delivered on their four core purposes. We have highlighted the need for distinct and clear reports, adding value to providers, system partners and ICSs themselves, without introducing undue burden and duplication.
