The Board received an update and presentation from the NHS Cheshire and Merseyside ICB’s Director of Strategy and Transformation, Philip Thomas, on arrangements for NHS Cheshire and Merseyside delivery in Halton, incorporating One Halton, the place based integrated partnership.


The Board has received regular updates and presentations on One Halton during the transition from Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to the commencement and embedding of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).  Today’s update included the following:


·         An overview of the Integrated Care System (ICS);

·         An overview of the Cheshire and Merseyside Integrated Care Board (ICB);

·         The vision of the Cheshire and Merseyside ICB;

·         The functions of the Place Based Partnerships;

·         The key priorities of the ICB;

·         The alignment of the ICB to Halton Place priorities;

·         An overview of Halton – life course approach; and

·         Halton Place priorities.


In response to the Board’s questions, the following information was provided:


·         Funding of £4.3b that the Cheshire and Merseyside ICB received this year, was allocated to each area using an historical formula used when the CCGs were in existence;

·         It was recognised that there were health inequalities in Halton that needed to be addressed;

·         The NHS Cheshire and Merseyside budget was mainly committed to large contracts;

·         It was important to prioritise the wellbeing of the population to keep them healthy; and

·         The ‘Halton Place’ structure and staff roles were described; it was noted that the Halton Place team had worked well together so far and were ready for the winter period.


It was suggested that a structure chart of the ICB and the Halton Place staff be provided to the Board – this would be sent by Halton Place staff following the meeting.
