The Black Country Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) is a statutory committee jointly formed between the NHS Integrated Care Board and the four councils in the Black Country. These ‘founding members’ have been meeting regularly and have extended their membership to bring together a broad alliance of partners concerned with improving the care, health, and wellbeing of the population. The sessions are held in a development style to come together and discuss the areas where we can work together locally 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
Integrated Care Strategy
The ICP has produced an integrated care strategy on how to meet the health and wellbeing needs of the population in the Black Country. The strategy which is available to download below, builds on and compliments the work of the Health and Wellbeing Boards in each area, but looks at the additionality that can be brought through system level working.
The Partnership will hold partners (including the ICB) to account for playing their part in delivering the strategy.
Our partnership committee
Our partnership committee meets every three months (quarterly) and core members are drawn from the Black Country ICB, local authorities, fire, and police.
Meeting dates and papers will be available here once the first meeting has been arranged.
