The ICS is a partnership of NHS, council, voluntary and community organisations with a shared vision to make ‘Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent the healthiest place to live and work’.

The ICS will be led by an NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB), a statutory organisation with responsibility for NHS functions and budgets, and an Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), a statutory committee bringing together all system partners to produce a health and care strategy.

Together with two health and wellbeing boards, each ‘Place’ arrangement will plan and deliver services that meet the needs of local communities.

Primary Care Networks are smaller groups of GP practices that will work with their communities, NHS, and social services to deliver care that helps people stay independent for longer.
