EARC Conference 2022 – Place-based approaches to health and wellbeing
Venue: Grove Room
Regional approaches to health and social care are being overhauled with the introduction of Integrated care systems (ICSs).
These are a new form of organisation that will integrate health and social care across different organisations and settings. They will be in charge of joining up hospital and community-based services, physical and mental health as well as health and social care.
In England there are 42 ICSs which will have statutory duties from July 2022. The ICSs in the East of England are currently designing their work processes that will shape health and social care delivery in the next few years.
This session will bring together researchers and regional stakeholders to have an open dialogue about challenges and opportunities of introducing ICSs particularly in coastal regions and the role of communities in place-based approaches to wellbeing.
