Integrated Care Northamptonshire
How to contact this service
Integrated Care Northamptonshire (ICN) is a partnership between the local organisations that meet people’s health and care needs in the county. These organisations include NHS providers, local councils, voluntary and community organisations, and other partners.
Working together, the organisations plan and deliver local services in a co-ordinated way to improve the health of people who live and work in Northamptonshire and reduce inequalities between different groups.
In Northamptonshire, These organisations have been working together in this way for some time. Now they are continuing this partnership as Integrated Care Northamptonshire to collectively tackle local health and care challenges.
Integrated Care Northamptonshire's work involves setting priorities for the future (with a focus on keeping people healthy and out of hospital) and putting communities at the heart of decision-making to ensure they are providing the joined-up care that people need, when and where they need it.
Integrated Care Northamptonshire's four key aims as an integrated care system are to:
Improve health for all: Delivering better health and wellbeing outcomes for the population of Northamptonshire by providing the right services to support the needs of communities and supporting people to prevent ill health.
Reduce health inequalities: Working to tackle unfair and avoidable differences in people’s health, their access to health services, and their ability to prevent illness – as well as the factors which cause these differences.
Make the best use of public funding: Ensuring that local health and care services are effective and sustainable for the future through co-ordinated decision-making, planning, delivery, and monitoring.
Support Northamptonshire's economic and social development: Close partnership working between the NHS, local authorities, and other partners to address the social and economic factors affecting people’s health and wellbeing (including through their roles as major local employers and stewards of public land and buildings).
Integrated Care Northamptonshire operates under the combined leadership of two statutory (legally required) bodies: NHS Northamptonshire Integrated Care Board (NICB) and Northamptonshire Integrated Care Partnership (NICP).
NICB is responsible for local NHS services, functions, performance, and budgets. It replaced the former NHS Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in July 2022. NICP is a statutory committee made up of local health services, local government, the voluntary and community sector, as well as other public sector partners.
