Many of the principles of ‘health creation’ align with the proposals for integrated care systems (ICS) we have set out in the Health and Care White Paper Bill, in particular by improving the role of community and place-based working by ensuring that health and social care services are delivered in a way that works best for a local area and their population. ICSs will strengthen partnerships between the National Health Service and local authorities and with local partners, including groups representing the public and patient perspective, the voluntary sector and wider public service provision.
