The Integrated Care System (ICS)

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Integrated Care System (ICS) is a partnership of organisations working together to improve the health and wellbeing of our local people throughout their lives.

The ICS brings together Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations, Local Authorities, and NHS Trusts to make a real positive difference to local people and communities.

What is an ICS?

Integrated Care Systems, or ICSs, are partnerships between organisations that meet health and care needs across an area. In our case our Integrated Care System covers all of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

By working together as a partnership, we are better able to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities, reducing health inequalities and putting local people at the heart of everything we do.

What does this mean for local people?

Rather than providing health and care in separate, and sometimes isolated parts of the system, the ICS approaches each person’s health and care needs as a whole. This will help us offer better, more consistent treatment to the people in our care, and support us to improve the health and wellbeing of local people throughout their lives.

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough ICS partners have agreed to the following priority objectives, which will give all organisations a shared focus to drive positive changes from birth and through each life phase our local people go through:

Equity – reduce inequalities in health outcomes

Opportunity – create a system of opportunity

People – give people more control over their health and wellbeing

Quality – deliver a world class service enabled by research and innovation

Sustainable – be environmentally and financially sustainable with a resilient workforce
