BNSSG Healthier Together

What is Healthier Together?

Healthier Together is the name given to our Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care System.    Find here an introduction to the BNSSG Integrated Care System

The Integrated Care System (ICS) is comprised of ten partner organisations, including the three Local Authorities in our area, NHS Trusts, the new Integrated Care Board and community and General Practice providers.

The Health and Care Act formalised new arrangements to ensure that ICSs became statutory entities in July 2022. This move gives us the opportunity to build on the successes of our partnership to date and accelerate progress on behalf of the people and communities we serve.

Together, we will work to improve health and wellbeing, reduce inequalities, and provide integrated services for the one million people living in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
