The Integrated Care System sees leaders across the ICB, NHS Trusts, Local Councils, Healthwatch and the VCSE sector come together around a shared vision and values. We all want the best health and social care outcomes for the people of the Black Country, but this has all too often meant that we are duplicating tasks, and this has had a profound impact upon people and communities’ willingness to share their views and experiences. We will find ways to work better together for the best outcomes for everyone. 

What good looks like

  • Further collaboration between Integrated Care System partners, people and communities to share learning, skills, knowledge, experience, connections with a focus on what’s strong. 

Case studies


We have begun establishing communities of practice in each of our four places with a range of colleagues from partner organisations and VCSE colleagues who work with people and communities. The networks provide opportunities for sharing ideas, knowledge, skills, networks, training, and best practice case studies to learn from what works and feed into our Place-Based Partnerships.

Hear Sally talk about forming communities of practice in Dudley across the partnership.
