ICS Roadshow 2022 – Manchester (North West)
PPP and the ICJ are coming together to create a new forum for integrated care. National health and care policy delivered locally.
About this event
With ICSs taking up statutory footing in July, ICS leaders must now move from a period of system transformation to one of service transformation.
PPP’s ICS Roadshow offers a unique opportunity to engage with local health and care leaders, to identify challenges and opportunities of integrated care in specific localities. This series of practical, interactive forums will allow for debate on the key issues facing local system leaders.
Taking a localised approach to the ICS debate also presents opportunities for carers and clinicians on the ground to share their concerns about system pressures, creating compelling and insightful testimony on the reality of delivering integrated care.
Manchester: Devolution and health outcomes
An early pace setter for the integration agenda, the Greater Manchester region has benefited from an historic devolution deal with the government. This head start has helped the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care partnership develop a robust governance structure.
The region’s approach to integrated care can be seen as a response to serious health challenges in the region which will be familiar to other ICSs. More than two thirds of early deaths in the Greater Manchester region are the result of preventable causes, such as smoking, alcohol dependency, poor diet or air pollution. Many of these deaths could be prevented through better support and better lifestyle choices, which the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care partnership aims to provide through working closely with affected communities and individuals.
With many ICSs still grappling with challenges pertaining to governance and accountability, taking lessons from the Greater Manchester example could help scale best practice across the country.
Who can attend?
Audiences will consist of local ICS leaders and representatives from the NHS, social care, primary care and local government, as well as community workers and social prescribing specialists. Further, the ICS Roadshow will engage with patients and end-users to gather first-hand experience of receiving care within a system in dire need of reform.
This event is for members of the Health and Care industry in the public sector only.
