The Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) is a committee of the ICB and our thirteen local authorities from across the North East and North Cumbria.
The ICP is responsible for setting out key priorities and developing our strategy for health and care to meet the needs of our population by bring together local councils, hospitals, community services, primary care, hospices, and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations and Healthwatch across the region.
The ICP is made up of our four local partnerships based around our main centres of population.
- North Cumbria ICP
- Central ICP (County Durham, Sunderland and South Tyneside)
- North ICP (Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland)
- Tees Valley ICP (Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees)
These local ICPs will develop a strategic picture of health and care needs from their constituent local authority 'places' working with a wide range of partners including existing health and wellbeing boards. These provide a vital forum for the NHS, local councils and other partners to assess the needs of local people and set local priorities for health and care improvement.
