Involvement Strategy


As we began greater collaborative working arrangements, we worked together with involvement leads across the ICB during 2022 to develop stronger partnership arrangements. Through this partnership work, we held conversations with our stakeholders to understand what has worked well for involvement, what could work better, and in an ideal world, how the ICB can deliver excellence through involvement across the North East and North Cumbria.

This information was used to develop the principles, aspirations, and framework for involvement for the ICB. This framework has been built upon conversations with our stakeholders, and a shared commitment to continue to involve patients, public, carers, and wider stakeholders in shaping, evaluating, and improving the services we commission.

Our Involvement Strategy

An Involvement Strategy was produced in coproduction with partner organisations. Based on research with partner organisations, our strategy works to our three key strategic principles of: 

• Valuing involvement 
• Developing consistency 
• Embracing innovation and improvement.
