The Integrated Care Board Chief Nurse Network

The ICB Chief Nurse Network

At Hallam Medical, we are proud to work in partnership and sponsor the The Integrated Care Board Chief Nurse Network (ICB Chief Nurse Network)

Working in partnership and supporting the ongoing work of the ICB Chief Nurse Network:

  • Demonstrate our commitment to providing our clients with experienced Community Healthcare Specialists
  • Remain at the forefront of best practice
  • Continue to provide our clients with forward-thinking, effective, and professional service.

The ICB Chief Nurse Network is an exciting new initiative by The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) and NHS Confederation to support nurse leadership within integrated care systems.

The network is chaired by Louise Patten, ICS Strategic Advisor at the NHS Confederation. Louise is a practising District Nurse, and a Fellow of the QNI.

Recognising that ICB Chief Nurses have very different leadership roles, the QNI and NHS Confederation partnership will work with ICB Nurses to achieve the objectives of strong system leadership, integrating care and tackling inequalities in health.

Both organisations recognise the need for a clinical leadership approach that focuses on building relationships, broad collaboration across provider organisations, and enhancing the transformation agenda across the system, which will underpin and inform the new network’s ethos and aims.

Integrated Care Systems in England

Statutory ICSs comprise 42 integrated care boards (ICBs) responsible for planning and funding most NHS services in their area, and integrated care partnerships (ICPs) committees that bring together partners (including local government, the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, NHS organisations and others) to develop a health and care strategy for the area. Working through their ICB and ICP, ICSs have four key aims:

  • improving outcomes in population health and health care
  • tackling inequalities in outcomes, experience and access
  • enhancing productivity and value for money
  • helping the NHS to support broader social and economic development.
