Get involved

How we listen to, and involve, our partners and communities – help shape our Engagement and Involvement Strategy.

We want to make sure the way we engage with, and involve, our community continues to be valued as our NHS structures change.

A short set of principles has been developed by those working with our communities which will help guide how the Integrated Care Board will develop our North East and North Cumbria Engagement and Involvement Strategy.

Very briefly the principle focus on:

  • Carrying on the good work happening at place level
  • Making sure we have the right structures in place to make it visible and meaningful
  • Looking for ways to innovate, such as exploring ways of embedding lived experience and what we could gain from a citizens panel

You can read more about them here and share your feedback by 3.30pm Monday 31 January 2022.

There will be lots of opportunities to get involved and help shape the strategy as it develops, but any feedback will help us start the journey together.

Join us - Do you want to be part of the team leading the Integrated Care Board for the North East and North Cumbria?  

This is an exciting time to join the executive leadership team for the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB). You will be joining a new team that will be values-led and will work collectively with each other, and all partners, across the health and care system to make a lasting difference to the communities we serve.

The North East and North Cumbria has been designated as the largest ICS area serving a population of 3.2 million people covering areas of contrast; from high levels of deprivation, through to high levels of affluence and everything else in between. This gives us a unique opportunity with our partners across local government, NHS, community, voluntary and social enterprise, academic and industry partners to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce the stark health inequalities that persist across our communities. 

You will be joining a new unitary board and senior executive leadership team for the ICB, chaired by Professor Sir Liam Donaldson. If you are values-driven and want to join a team that will make collaborative leadership our core priority, then I would like to hear from you.  We are looking for applications from experienced and diverse people to lead the development and delivery of one of the most ambitious health and care strategies our communities have seen.

Draft Integrated Care Board constitution

The Integrated Care Board (ICB) constitution is an important document that sets out what the ICB will do and how it will work.

We are keen to hear from all our partners and anyone interested in the work of the ICB – on any aspect of our draft constitution. We will be making our submission to NHSE/I on 3 December 2021 but we will be keeping the document under review.
