Integrated Care Coalition

The Integrated Care Coalition

Senior leaders across health and social care in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge (BHR) have committed to working together in a new guiding coalition of strategic partners that is developing a joint approach to integrated care to build a sustainable health and social care system. The Integrated Care Coalition has been established as an Advisory Board to oversee strategic change across health and social care. It replaces the previous Chief Executives’ Forum.

The Coalition acts to bring together senior leaders in the BHR health and social care economy to support the three BHR Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the three Local Authorities in commissioning integrated care and ensuring a sustainable health and social care system. It also includes our two main providers – BHRUT and NELFT. The Integrated Care Coalition is responsible for:

• Developing recommendations for a system wide integrated care strategy for consideration by the system’s health and social care commissioners: the Health and Wellbeing Boards and CCGs.

• Developing the systems 5 year strategic plan (delegating authority for the co-ordination of the plan to the Coalition sub group: Integrated Care Steering Group)

• Driving improvement in urgent care at a pace across the BHR system (delegating authority to the Coalition sub group: Urgent Care Board)

The Integrated Care Coalition also receives updated reports from BHRUT and all partners on its improvement programme (LTFM / Clinical Strategy and A&E improvement plan) and agrees areas and actions where a system response is required.

The BHR System Resilience Group (SRG) and Integrated Care Joint Health and Social Care Steering Group are both sub groups of the Integrated Care Coalition.
