- Digital referral will be improved, creating a clearer workflow process and status updates

The legislative changes of the Health & Care Act Bill, set up to enable health and care organisations to work more closely together and streamline healthcare planning and improve interoperability last year saw the abolishment of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the introduction of 42 Integrated Care Systems (ICS).
Changing the way that healthcare is commissioned, and part of the ICS structure sits Integrated Care Boards (ICB) that have the responsibility of developing a plan for meeting the health needs of the population, managing the NHS budget and arranging for the provision of health services.
One of those ICBs, serving 2.7 million citizens across nine local authorities*, and one of the largest integrated care organisations in the UK, is NHS Cheshire and Merseyside.
