The ICS is based on voluntary collaboration of local NHS bodies founded on the principle of reaching joint consensus. The CCG Governing Body and the Foundation Boards remain the statutory decision making bodies in our system.

To support our joint working, we have established an ICS Unified Executive group, which includes senior executives and clinicians from all partner organisations, who take responsibility for delivery of the ICS programme of work and monitoring and reviewing the financial performance of the Integrated Care System and its constituent organisations. You can see the governance structure here.

Where changes to clinical pathways and services are identified we will work with local residents to shape and develop improvements in response to local needs.
