Each Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) is required to write an integrated care strategy by December 2022 that sets out how the assessed local needs can be met through the Integrated Care Board, partner local authorities or NHS England. This must include clear plans to reduce disparities in health access, experience and outcomes. The Department regional teams are working with ICPs to ensure that plans are comprehensive, ambitious and are driven by the evidence on local need.
