Integrated Care System
We're bringing together our local NHS, councils and voluntary sector to create an Integrated Care System (ICS) so we can better serve you in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
The Strategic Commissioner and Integrated Care System (ICS) Board look after the entire system across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, setting the goals for the ICPs and PCNs and the strategy for success.
Find out more about the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System here.
The ICS as system leader has led work on gathering insight to inform the development of the Long Term Plan for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
A large scale programme of engagement on the NHS Long Term Plan has been undertaken over spring and summer of 2019 across the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS and CCGs. More than 1,000 local people helped shape our Long Term Plan providing a wealth of insight to help us improve and deliver services in a way that reflects what matters to people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

This engagement has gathered insights that have been used to inform a local strategic plan for the system and the CCGs Commissioning Intentions 2020/21.
Integrated Care Partnerships
We have three Integrated Care Partnerships (ICP) – Mid-Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City and South Nottinghamshire.
They are serving populations of 250,000 to 500,000 people. ICPs are partnerships that are supporting the neighbourhood level of Primary Care Networks whilst making sure that the wider health and care needs of their areas are recognised. Further information is available here.
Examples of engagement undertaken by Integrated Care Partnerships are available below;
Primary Care Networks
At neighbourhood level, we have 20 Primary Care Networks (PCNs) which are led by a Clinical Director (usually a local GP).
Their role is to support groups of GP practices to come together locally, in partnership with community services, social care, mental health and other providers of health and social care including the voluntary sector. They are serving communities of 30,000 to 50,000 people. A short animation providing further information on Primary Care Networks is available here.
Detailed population profiles are used by our Primary Care Networks as a planning tool and are available here.
An example of engagement undertaken by Primary Care Networks is available below;
In April 2013 Healthwatch took over Local Involvement Networks (or LINks) as the new consumer champion for health and social care services.
The aim of Healthwatch is to give citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided locally.
Healthwatch Nottingham and Nottinghamshire aims to make sure that the views of the public and people who use services are taken into account in the planning and provision of health and social care services locally. Information that is gathered via Healthwatch will be used by the national Healthwatch to influence national policy, advice and guidance.
