Health and Care Partnership Meets in Public
The second meeting in public of a new health and care partnership will take place in Derby this week (Wednesday 19th April 2023) and will agree on the three areas for focus as the partnership starts its work in earnest. The Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Partnership brings together NHS, local authorities, the voluntary sector and others to agree the strategy and direction for the Joined Up Care Derbyshire Integrated Care System (ICS).
Established by law in England in July 2022, the purpose of ICSs is to bring partner organisations together to:
- improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
- tackle inequalities in outcomes, experience and access
- enhance productivity and value for money
- help the NHS support broader social and economic development.
The meeting is hosted by Derby City Council and will take place in the Council Chamber at the Council House on Corporation Street in Derby at 1:30pm. Meetings of the Integrated Care Partnership will take place every two months, with agendas and meeting papers available seven days in advance on Derby City Council’s Democracy Portal. Members of the public can attend in person or view the meeting online via the Derby City Council YouTube Channel. Agenda items include:
- Report from Derby and Derbyshire Health and Wellbeing Boards
- Draft Integrated Care Strategy
- NHS Joint Forward Plan
- Report from NHS Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board
