Why things are changing in health and care in England.
|The Government made some changes to the way health and care services work.|
|The changes are in a new law called the Health and Care Act 2022. It started on 1 July 2022 and will change how we plan and pay for services.|
|We also want health and care services to work together more so it’s easier to get the services people need.|
What is an Integrated Care System?
|There are lots of different organisations that can help when you are ill or need support. This can be different NHS services, the council or charities. This can be confusing.|
|We think that all the organisations involved in health and care in Norfolk and Waveney should work together. This is called an integrated care system or ICS for short|
|We already work like this in Norfolk and Waveney but now it will happen everywhere in England|
|Integrated care systems are about planning health and care services based on what people need in your area.|
They will work with local people to decide what to do.
|Norfolk and Waveney’s integrated care system will:|
• make sure that people can live as healthy a life as possible
• make sure that you only have to tell your story once
• make Norfolk and Waveney the best place to work in health and care
What is an Integrated Care Partnership?
|The Integrated Care Partnership or ICP for short brings together the NHS, Local Government, Healthwatch and other public and community sector partners, as equal partners.|
|The ICP is a statutory committee of both the NHS and Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils.|
Focusing on prevention, health inequalities and voluntary and community organisations.
How will services work better together?
|1. Health and social care will work together more.|
• organisations or services run or paid for by the NHS (like hospitals)
• voluntary and community organisations (like charities)
• and other social care services like supported living.
|2. Services that help with your thoughts and feelings (mental health) and services that help with your body (physical health) will work together more.|
This will help people get the right support.
|3. Local doctors (GPs), pharmacies (chemists) and hospitals will also work together more and share ideas.|
|This is to make sure people get the care and treatment they need at the right time.|
They will also work with people, their families or anyone else who supports them.
What is an Integrated Care Board?
|Integrated Care Boards or ICBs for short is the new official NHS organisation bringing the NHS and partners together locally to improve health and care.|
|The Integrated Care Board will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the NHS in Norfolk and Waveney, including planning and buying healthcare services.|
|The work done by NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will now be done by NHS Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board from July 2022.|
