BOB ICS Publishes Update on the Development of its Five Year Plan

The Buckinghamshire Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care System (BOB ICS) has published an interim report on the development of its five year plan.

The report Improving Health and Care in Buckinghamshire Oxfordshire and Berkshire West describes the range of organisations involved in the BOB ICS, how they work together and how they are developing their priorities and plans for the next five years.

The BOB ICS five year, one system plan will set out how all ICS partners will work together locally and together at scale to meet the current and future health and care needs of the communities they serve.

It will describe how the BOB ICS will deliver the requirements of NHS Long Term Plan (www.longtermplan.nhs.uk) and address BOB ICS’s specific priorities.

 

The next phase of work to develop the BOB ICS five year plan is underway.

Our one system plan will describe how all partners within the ICS will work together locally and, when appropriate, together across the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West area, to ensure current and future health and care needs are met.

The plan will be published at the end of November 2019. It will describe how the ICS will deliver its agreed priorities and the requirements of NHS Long Term Plan Implementation Framework, www.longtermplan.nhs.uk/publication/implementation-framework/

 

From July, patients visiting their GP Practice in the BOB ICS area  (covering Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West),  will be offered enhanced access to health care services, as part of the NHS Long Term Plan through the creation of Primary Care Networks (PCN).

David Clayton-Smith has been appointed to the role of Independent Chair of the Buckinghamshire Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care System (BOB ICS).

The application submitted by Chief Executives to become a Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB) Integrated Care System (ICS) has been approved by NHS England/NHS Improvement. The BOB ICS will bring together health and care organisations to work more closely to respond to the needs of local communities and the 1.8 million people within the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West area.

The BOB Excellence Centre was launched this month to improve the quality of and access to, vocational training for support staff working in health and social care across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

 

 

BOB STP is pleased to be supporting the #MovingIs campaign, which runs from 13 May 2019 for a week, as part of our prevention work programme, which supports people to make and maintain positive lifestyle behaviour.

 

 

To help us on this next stage of the journey, we are looking for an Independent Chair who can provide non-executive and independent leadership to our STP.
