ICSs – an opportunity to improve Patient & Market Access at a local level

With the new Health and Care Bill edging ever closer to receiving Royal Assent, life sciences companies in the UK are preparing to navigate the most significant piece of NHS legislation in a decade.

The new bill, which is expected to come into force on 1st July, will see Clinical Commissioning Groups replaced with Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) as statutory bodies across England. These ICSs will be comprised of two parts – an integrated care board (ICB), which will be responsible for strategic planning and allocation decisions in the NHS, and an integrated care partnership (ICP), responsible for assembling system partners and developing an action plan for public health and social care needs across a designated geographical area.

However, while this dramatic shake-up of the UK Market Access environment aims to improve care for patients and providers for life science companies, this unfamiliar territory presents both opportunities and challenges. So, what are the key elements that decision-makers need to address in order to develop successful future strategies?

The webinar will also cover:

  • Up to date analysis of political, economic, social, technological, environmental, and legal factors surrounding the new legislation
  • A deep dive into a joint collaborative project providing care closer to patients between Oxfordshire CCG and Boehringer Ingelheim
  • Key issues keeping pharma and ICS awake at night
