Operational Plan

As we transition to become an Integrated Care System, we are working with our system partners to develop integrated plans that focus on how we deliver the aims of better health and wellbeing, better care and lower costs. Our priorities as a system are to:

  • Keep colleagues safe from COVID – deliver the vaccination programme, maintain the Long COVID pathways and ensure we can respond to any future waves of COVID-19
  • Tackle long waiting times for care as we come out of the COVID-19 pandemic by reducing our elective backlog and ensuring timely access to urgent and emergency care
  • Transform care pathways based on early help and early intervention vision for:
    • Infant mortality through neonatal and maternity pathways
    • Birmingham and Solihull’s most vulnerable children through early help, locality teams and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) improvement The need for early help and early intervention in mental health services, maternity, children’s services and older people’s services
    • Older people through a ‘home first’ approach with integrated neighbourhood teams
    • Mental health and reducing out of area placements or Tier 4 CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) placements
  • Deliver on our priorities with balanced financial plans
  • Improve the health of people with long term conditions and tackling inequalities by delivering primary care pathways focused on prevention
  • Deliver digitally driven care pathways
  • Establish the Integrated Care System partners as ‘anchor institutions’ for tackling inequalities through a systematic approach to making good quality public sector jobs available to people from our most disadvantaged communities
  • Invest in the health and wellbeing of health and social care colleagues across the ICS including addressing issues of equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Build a system for tackling inequalities in Birmingham and Solihull bringing together population health management, a locality and neighbourhood operating model and our inequalities strategy
  • Continue to build an effective Integrated Care System that will serve the people of Birmingham and Solihull well – establishing the ICS, provider collaboratives, system financial strategy, designing a system’s estate strategy.
