The Health & Care Act 2022: What you need to know now
ICS, ICB, heath, communications, briefing, change, government, health and care act,
What’s the difference between an ICB or ICP? How is commissioning changing? What exactly is an integrated care system?

Reform and change across the health system always throws up plenty of questions. This is certainly true for the latest round of changes being brought in by the Health & Care Act 2022, which comes into force in England on 1st July 2022. The Act makes a number of changes, in particular putting Integrated Care Systems on a statutory footing. With a range of commissioning and planning responsibilities delivered through Integrated Care Boards (ICB) and Integrated Care Partnerships (ICP).

To help answer some of these questions CIPR Health is excited to offer a briefing followed by Q&A session on what communications and PR professionals need to know about the Act.

The briefing will give an overview of these changes focusing on:

- An overview of the new structures, their powers and responsibilities
- What this might mean for health communications
- What challenges and opportunities does this present for people working in health communications
The briefing will be delivered by Claire Riley, executive director of corporate governance, communications and involvement at the North East and North Cumbria ICS/ICB. Claire was previously executive director of communications and corporate affairs at Northumbria Healthcare where she has led a multi award-winning team for 12 years. Prior to this she was director of communications for the North East Strategic Health Authority where she joined in 2007 with over 20 years private sector experience gained within the region. 

The event will take place virtually, via Zoom Webinar and is worth 5 CIPR CPD points.
