NAO publishes report and data on ICSs
Going will be tough for ICS says NAO
A Value for Money report by the National Audit Office (NAO) on Integrated Care Systems (ICS) in England concludes that it will be challenging for the NHS in England to meet the policy’s original goals.
It reported that the DHSC, NHSE and partners could address this by developing national-level strategies and solutions to give ICSs time to build relationships and design services that “better meet local needs” and improve “the health and wellbeing of the populations they serve”.
NOA has also launched an interactive map of England, allowing users to explore ICS data collected to inform the NAO study. With the tool, you can see measures such as efficiency targets, workforce data and the number of GPs per 100,000 population.
