Information from NHS Employers:

NHS Employers has launched a new guide that provides tips and insight to help system leaders start to think about integrated working.

On 1 July 2022, 42 ICSs were established across England to make it easier for local areas to work together successfully. ICSs are working to develop a workforce that integrates and connects across all parts of the system.

To help systems understand this new way of working, NHS Employers has worked in partnership with Skills for Care (SFC) and the Care and Health Improvement Programme, which is a collaboration between the Local Government Association (LGA) and Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) to produce a new guide that provides tips and insight to help systems consider what is needed to successfully integrate their workforce thinking.

This guide is aimed at ICS workforce leads, chief people officers, directors of adult social services (ASC), chief executives, human resource (HR) directors, elected members including ASC portfolio holders and chairs of health and wellbeing boards, and those who are responsible for integrated workforce thinking across health and social care.
