In Dorset, we’ve been working as an integrated care system (ICS) for a few years. Our ICS is called Our Dorset. Integrating health and care is about removing traditional barriers between services so people can access the support and care they need from NHS and social care services when they need it.

Last year the government set out proposals for all areas across England to become an ICS by 1 July 2022. Legislation from NHS England and the government gives legal credibility to this more joined-up way of working.

As well as ICS, you may have heard the acronyms ICB and ICP floating about, but what do they mean, and what’s the difference between them? Take a look at our video, which explains them all.
