Industry briefing: What can we learn from Integrated Care Boards' five-year forward plans?

Following the launch of WA Communications’ new ICS priorities data map, please join us for a deep-dive into the five-year forward plans published by Integrated Care Boards.

This session will explore the general priorities set out by 40 ICSs across the country, looking at where digital features in these plans and considering how best to engage with ICBs on key priorities.

The map contains an in-depth analysis of every ICB's five-year joint forward plan - allowing users to understand the level of priority each ICB is placing on key needs including specific conditions and cross cutting health themes such as data and digital, prevention and workforce. You can access the map and toggle between the 27 common themes across 40 ICSs here.

Joining us from WA Communications will be:

  • Dean Sowman, Partner and Head of Health, WA Communications
  • Alice Inch, Director, WA Communications
  • Erlandas Kazak, Senior Account Executive, WA Communications
