Public Health and their teams are vital to the development of new Integrated Care Systems

Public health advice and support arrangements into Integrated Care Systems in England

Local NHS organisations in England are increasingly focused on their contribution to population health outcomes through new integrated care systems (ICSs).

ICSs provide a mechanism for local partners to lead the planning and commissioning of care for their populations, providing system leadership and accountability at scale across local authority and clinical commissioning group boundaries.

Directors of Public Health and their teams are vital to the development, leadership and influencing of local population health plans and this note focuses specifically on their role in England.

Guidance from Government outlines how Public Health should be embedded in this work.
