Putting people and communities at the core of the Integrated Care System (ICS) - stakeholder workshops

About this event

Workshop 1: A diversity of approaches for a diversity of voices : Monday 28th March 10-11.30am - Via Zoom

If people, communities and patient voices are to be put at the core of the Integrated Care system, how do you hear them? What is already in place or being planned? What innovations could be introduced to the way the ICS listens, engages and collaborates? This workshop will consider and answer these questions across the different tiers of ICS governance – strategic (system), operational (place), neighbourhood. It will consider existing methods in use at each level, aim to challenge the group to go further, and identify opportunities to pioneer additional approaches. To support this, New Local will draw on examples from elsewhere to help stimulate thinking.

Workshop 2: Listening and learning as a system : Monday 11th April 10-11.30am – Via Zoom

National guidance indicates the importance of not only listening and engaging with people and communities but working at a system level, as providers and partners, to integrate the insights and outcomes of this activity. This workshop will help to identify what partners/providers are currently doing that works well, and could be shared, and how listening and learning as a system can become an integral rather than standalone activity. Its aim will be to guide a way of working so that shared intelligence is retained over the long-term. It will also consider what support or learning would be helpful to the ICS to support any necessary changes in culture and ways of working.

Workshop 3: Testing and learning – innovating with focus - Thursday 28th April 11.00-13.00pm – The Heatons Centre

Stockport has indicated a desire to innovate and be ambitious with how it takes forward its people and communities agenda as part of the Integrated Care System, so how can the ICS move quickly to put agreed plans into action? One or two specific areas of health and care will be identified for a test and learn approach, and this workshop will help to work through those examples to identify how to put the recommendations into practice and how to evidence and capture the outcomes and learning.
