What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?
The role of the Integrated Care System (ICS) Board is to provide leadership and development of overarching strategy for Lancashire & South Cumbria, oversight and facilitation of delivery of sustainability, transformation and design of the future state of health and care.
The Board will meet on a monthly basis to consider progress and risks in the implementation of the shadow integrated care system’s aims and objectives and approve any mitigation measures and other action required to assure success, in line with the approved programme.

These governance arrangements provide a fair approach to representation from individual organisations. No single organisation from the five NHS trusts, eight Clinical Commissioning Groups, four upper tier Local Authorities and twelve districts have a right of veto Lancashire and South Cumbria-wide decisions.

This includes assurance on clinical priority by the Care Professionals Board, economic priority by the Finance Investment Group, operational feasibility by the Provider Board and commissioning feasibility by the Collaborative Commissioning Board.
