 Greater Manchester Integrated Care System (ICS)

 In February 2021 the Government announced a number of new measures as part of a proposed Health and Care Bill, including the creation of statutory Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).

 In Greater Manchester we have been working as an ICS for the last five years – with strong working partnerships between health and social care and the voluntary sector. The creation of a statutory ICS will formalise the arrangements we have in place and mark another positive step in our journey, which started with the health and care devolution deal in 2015. The statutory ICS will include a new ICS NHS Body and Health and Care Partnership Board.

 From April 2022 (subject to national legislative approval) the commissioning duties of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), including their functions and roles, will transfer to be delivered as part of the new Greater Manchester ICS NHS Body. This will mean that functions and roles may be delivered differently in the future, with place based and Greater Manchester-level teams working alongside each other.
