Please note: BOB ICP’s online survey and engagement period have now closed.

The Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care Partnership (BOB ICP) is asking for feedback from Buckinghamshire residents on how it can improve the health and care system for local people.

Members of the ICP have already consulted with partner organisations, the voluntary sector and other stakeholders to understand their views. The next step is to work directly with the people of Bucks so that they can help to agree a set of priorities for the partnership.

What is BOB ICP?

BOB ICP was set up in July 2022. It’s a group of organisations that work together to plan and provide health and social care services.

Altogether, BOB ICP looks after the needs of two million people who live and work in the local authority areas of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, West Berkshire, Reading and Wokingham.

By working together and consulting with the people it serves, BOB ICP aims to provide joined up health and social care that can tackle the complex challenges many of us face.

It will also help to address the health inequalities that affect how easily members of some communities can access the support they need.

BOB ICP’s draft strategy

The draft strategy BOB ICP has prepared suggests focusing on the following priorities:

  • Promoting and protecting health – supporting people to stay healthy, protecting them from health hazards and preventing ill-health
  • Start well – helping children to achieve the best start in life
  • Live well – supporting people and communities to stay healthy for as long as possible
  • Age well – supporting people to live healthier, more independent lives for longer
  • Improving quality and access to services – helping people to access the services they need in the right place at the right time.

Feedback from people who live in Bucks, as well as the other areas overseen by BOB ICP, will help to refine these so that a further draft of the strategy can be published in 2023.
