NHS England has launched a 12 week consultation on the contracting arrangements for Integrated Care Providers (ICPs).
The consultation provides more detail about how the proposed ICP Contract would underpin integration between services, how it differs from existing NHS contracts, how ICPs fit into the broader commissioning system, and which organisations could hold the ICP Contract. The previous iteration of this draft contract was referred to as the draft Accountable Care Organisation (ACO) Contract. The consultation materials including information on how to respond and details of engagement events can be found on the NHS England Website.
The consultation runs until 26 October 2018.
