Leaders from the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) and ICS (Integrated Care System) want to gather views on future plans for NHS commissioning in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB).

The ICS launched the first stage of engagement on 10th October and this will continue to 1st December 2019. They produced an engagement document that explains plans for two new ways of working:

  • Local working in each of the three counties through Integrated Care Partnerships
  • Wider, at-scale working, across the three countries through an Integrated Care System

The three CCGs in the BOB area are already working together to buy some services.

Our view

We have responded to the ICS with some concerns. Our main issue, at this time, are that the engagement process is not accessible to the public. The documents the ICS have created are not design for the public to read or understand. The documents also do not describe plans to speak to the public in the future. You can read our full response below.
