Information for observing the ICS Board and Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups meetings for members of the public

If you wish to attend either the ICS Board or the JCCCG meeting, please specify in your email, which one you would like to attend.

ICS Board Wednesday 3 March 2021 10am - 12:30pm

The Integrated Care System (ICS) Board is a partnership board, constituted of a range of NHS, local government, voluntary and community sector organisations working together across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The ICS Board provides leadership and development of the overarching Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System strategy, oversight and facilitation of delivery of sustainability, transformation and design of the future state of health and care. It meets formally every two months to consider progress and risks in the implementation of the 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.

To be open and transparent regarding the business of the ICS Board, members of the public will be invited to observe the formal meeting on Wednesday 3 March 2021. Whilst under normal circumstances the public would be able to attend meetings held in public in accessible venues, this is not currently possible due to Government guidelines. Therefore, until further notice, formal meetings of the ICS Board will be held virtually by default using Microsoft Teams. The agenda, papers and minutes for formal meetings of the ICS Board will be published on the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System website.

Members of the public can request to observe the ICS Board on 3 March by emailing us by 4pm on Tuesday 2 March and providing their name. They will be provided with a link to join the meeting and some important information about joining the meeting. Regarding public questions concerning specific agenda items, we ask for these to be submitted by email prior to the meeting. We may need to defer any questions should the focus of the meeting need to be re-prioritised at short notice as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have any ques­tions to put to the ICS Board relating to items on the agenda for the meeting on Wednesday 3 March 2021, please for­ward questions in advance by email by 4pm on Tuesday 2 March.

A response will be sent directly to the individual who raised the question.

Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (JCCCG) Thursday 4th March 2021 1pm - 2:30pm

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are NHS organisations that plan and buy healthcare for their communities. The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (JCCCG) is a meeting of the CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria and will be responsible for making decisions about any future proposals referred to it by the CCGs. Decisions will be referred to this committee if they require a Lancashire and South Cumbria approach. but most decisions about healthcare will continue to be taken locally.

The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups consists of GPs and lay members from each of the Clinical Commissioning Groups in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Chief Executives from Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackpool Council, representatives from district Councils and local Healthwatch attend the meetings.

In common with other NHS Boards, the Joint Committee of CCGs conducts its formal business in meetings held in public. Members of the public are therefore invited to observe the formal meeting on Thursday 4 March 2021. Whilst under normal circumstances the public would be able to attend meetings held in public in accessible venues, this is not currently possible due to Government guidelines. Therefore, until further notice, formal meetings of the JCCCGs will be held virtually by default using Microsoft Teams. The agenda, papers and minutes for formal meetings of the JCCCGs will be published on the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria website.

Members of the public can request to observe the JCCCGs on 4 March by emailing us by 4pm on Wednesday 3 March 2021 and providing their name. They will be provided with a link to join the meeting and some important information about joining the meeting. Regarding public questions concerning specific agenda items, we ask for these to be submitted by email prior to the meeting. We may need to defer any questions should the focus of the meeting need to be re-prioritised at short notice as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have any questions to put to the JCCCGs relating to items on the agenda for the meeting on Thursday 14 January 2021, please for­ward questions in advance by email by 4pm on Wednesday 4 March 2021.
