As Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) become statutory bodies from today, Skills for Health CEO John Rogers comments:
“While work has been underway to develop ICSs across the country for some time, the changes coming into force today (1 July) represent a significant next step on the roadmap towards maturity.
“Skills for Health has been working in support of a number of ICSs across the country and have seen the huge benefits of collaborative working, especially in the workforce arena.
“As we reach this important milestone, Skills for Health would like to reiterate its commitment to working with the NHS and its partners to realise the potential of ICSs and improve healthcare outcomes for all. We are very optimistic that the Integrated Care Systems agenda, alongside better-integrated workforces, will deliver high quality, joined-up care.”
