Fiona Wise, the Executive Lead for the Integrated Care System (ICS), has responded to the points we raised.
Our robust feedback about how the engagement document was written has been well received by the ICS leader.
Thank you for your comments regarding the language used in the engagement document and for drawing our attention to this important matter. I have asked ICS colleagues to carefully consider how information is presented in public facing documents, taking on board the points you have made.
In her letter, Fiona also acknowledged the “need to consider how best to involve patients and the public in work that spans the ICS.”
The ICS has also published a full report of the feedback they received.
