ICS Consultation - LMC Response

Publication date: January 2021

Humberside LMCs have submitted a response to the consultation on Integrated Care Systems. ICS's will present a significant change to the way the NHS is organised in England, with NHS organisations, in partnership with local councils and others, taking collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS care, and improving the health of the population they serve. 

As the professional voice of general practice in the Humber area we are keen to ensure that general practice is involved in the development of the proposals and the design of the consultation. We are concerned that the timing of the consultation and the proposed models do not address our concerns over what will be a hugely significant change for the delivery of primary care generally and for general practice in particular.

Read the LMC ICS consultation response

Our next steps:

• Receive and review consultation responses.

• Work with YORLMC and seek a meeting with HCV ICS leadership to state our case for primary care representation and set out the role of GPs, CDs and the LMC in this and how we might put this in place

• Attend Humber Partnership PCN development session to form opinions on how the system can work with PCNs.  All CDs are invited also.

• Raise the issue of ICS representation at the LMC meeting on 12th January.  Matt De Hoest has agreed to lead this item from his perspective on the Professional Board

We will keep you informed of developments with this.
