Integrated Care Systems

Presentation by the Chief Officer, NHS Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Group



The Chief Officer, NHS Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Group gave a PowerPoint presentation updating Members on the work towards implementing an operating model for NHS North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB).


It was reported that the ICB was due to go live on 1 July 2022; Samantha Allen had been recruited as CEO designate and was now in post; and work was ongoing to review the meeting infrastructure, formal governance arrangements and further engagement with partners would be undertaken.


Reference was made to the guiding principles for ICS development which had been agreed by the Joint Management Executive Group (JMEG); that national guidance and the JMEG process had shaped how the ICB would work at a system and place level; and a detailed operating model would be finalised in the next few weeks, including placed based working arrangements.


Members were informed that the ICB would cover the North East and North Cumbria with four Integrated Care Partnerships (ICP), North Cumbria, North of Tyne and Gateshead, Durham, South Tyneside and Sunderland and Tees Valley; and details were provided of the ICB functions discharged at a system and place level, with particular reference made to commissioning arrangements.


Details were provided of the system flow chart and committees and workstreams of the ICB; reference was made to key questions to consider in respect of the operating model; and next steps would include engagement with stakeholders on the proposed operating model, testing the proposed model, reviewing the ICB committee roles and structures and concluding CCG staff mapping, giving consideration to how staff would be best deployed to support the final model.


Discussion ensued on commissioning arrangements; Member involvement in the ICB; and guidance for Health and Wellbeing Boards.

REASON – To convey the views of the Board.
