This document is a strategic framework for embedding citizen voice and involvement in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board (ICB), building on our Partnership’s progress to date.
It describes how the ICB will work alongside the Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) to ensure that people are at the heart of all we do in our health and care system. It sets out some of the principles and approaches we will use to guide us as our partnership evolves, and ways in which we will assess our progress and maturity.
This document reflects the guidance provided by NHS England and NHS Improvement to Integrated Care Boards and other NHS organisations. It also draws on the core principles of our ICS Memorandum of Understanding, which was approved by all 10 partner organisation boards in Autumn 2021 and contains our system Communications and Engagement framework.
