About integrated care partnerships (ICP)

Across the country, integrated care partnerships (ICP) are being set up to help organisations work better with the public to keep everyone healthier; plan and deliver health services more effectively; make sure everyone is treated equally and fairly; help the NHS become as efficient as possible itself and also help it contribute to the wider economy.

Here in Greater Manchester the new arrangements mark the latest stage in the city region’s journey to more joined-up working, which has developed since our health and social care devolution deal in February 2015.

Our system will be called GM Integrated Care Partnership and will be made up of two statutory elements:

  • Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership Board, involving all the different organisations which support people’s health and care
  • NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care, a new organisation, overseen by a Board, to support integration within the NHS to take a joint approach to agreeing and delivering ambitions for the health of the population

In addition there will be similar partnerships in each of GM’s ten districts or localities.

Our system partnership will operate at three levels: neighbourhood, locality and Greater Manchester and will have a single vision and strategy

GM Integrated Care Partnership will bring together all the different organisations which support people’s health and care and, working with our people and communities, will create and oversee our region’s overall integrated care strategy which the wider system will work to deliver.

Members of the Partnership (which is an evolution of the longstanding Health and Social Care Partnership) come from all ten parts of GM, including all NHS organisations, councils, GM Combined Authority, organisations from across the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sectors and others all working together to help achieve our common vision.
