Council quits leading ICS due to ‘lack of democratic oversight’

A major council has pulled out of a leading integrated care system because of a lack of “democratic oversight”.

Nottingham City Council has suspended its involvement in the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS for six months due to concerns over the project’s transparency.

The council quit in late November and said it will review its involvement in spring 2019. It will continue to work with the NHS on day to day work, including winter planning.
