Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care System (ICS) is a partnership between the NHS, local councils and others, which takes collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS care, and improving the health of our local population. As ICS partners, we serve a large, diverse and vibrant region with incredible examples of innovative health and social care and many world-class services. However, there remain deep pockets of inequality and variation. As we emerge from the pandemic, focussing on integration has never been more important. We have an opportunity to close the gaps and create effective, holistic, person- centred pathways which support the citizens of Birmingham and Solihull to live healthier and happier lives. To help us achieve this we are looking to appoint two independent System Non Executive Directors – one to lead on finances and one on inequalities,
Whilst there is more work to do to create the ICS, it will bring about improvements in health outcomes for local people, reducing health inequalities, promoting continuity of care, and making practical improvements to people’s lives, as well as creating more support, time and space for staff to collaborate and deliver their roles more effectively, in a safe and compassionate way. The ICS will be able to do this by looking at the wider determinants of health and wellbeing, in a much more joined-up and unified way.
We are passionate about the difference that we can make by working together, to tackle the unacceptable health inequalities we have across the area. By working together, we can take big decisions around how and where care is delivered, ensuring we make the most impact. By integrating how we make decisions together and holding ourselves to account about how we offer and deliver care, we believe we are more likely to close the health and wellbeing, care, quality and financial gaps across our area. Ultimately, we want Birmingham and Solihull to be the best place to live and work.
