Actions to support partnership Addressing barriers to working with the VCSE sector in integrated care systems

Actions to support partnership

Integrated care systems (ICSs) form the basis of a national vision for planning, developing and leading a strategic approach to addressing the wider health, public health and social care needs of local populations. ICSs are also responsible for  allocating the NHS budget and commissioning services to meet those local needs. Key to achieving this is that ICSs take account of and work with organisations that contribute to those aims, and legislation requires greater collaboration with all system partners.
