NEL ICS response to NHSE/I

North East London Integrated Care System submitted a formal response to the NHSE/I board paper “Next steps for integrated care”.

The attached response confirms that as a system we are broadly supportive of the proposals laid out in the paper and outline our preference, in principle, for enshrining ICSs in legislation via “Option 2: a statutory corporate NHS body model that additionally brings CCG statutory functions into the ICS.”
