ICSs: unlocking local economic potential
Join us for a special online event exploring the role that ICSs can play in unlocking local economic potential and how they can reach beyond the NHS to work alongside local authorities and other partners.
With the introduction of the Integrated Care System (ICS) structure in England the NHS’s role as series of key anchor institutions has never been more important. Introduced with the intention to help the NHS support broader social and economic development, specific to the context of a place, ICSs have the potential to drive improvements in population health and tackle health inequalities.
This event will see the launch of a new paper from CLES exploring these themes and will be chaired by Carolyn Wilkinson, CLES’s Chair of Trustees and Trustee of the King’s Fund and a member of the NHS Assembly. Carolyn will be joined by Tom Lloyd Goodwin, CLES’s Director of Policy and Practice and Michael Wood, Head of Health Economic Partnerships at the NHS Confederation.
The event is free of charge and there will be opportunities to put questions to the speakers.
This event will be conducted entirely online – joining instructions will be sent in advance of the session.
