Future Planning Model - Targeted Stakeholder Consultation

Consultation opened on 19 July 2021. Closing date 17 September 2021.


A programme of work has commenced to develop a Future Planning Model to replace the existing commissioning arrangements and processes in Northern Ireland.

Update: The below targeted consultation was undertaken in 2021. Detail on the subsequent programme of work to develop the Integrated Care System (ICS) for Northern Ireland, including an updated framework, is available online (link to document can be found below under Integrated Care System (ICS) for Northern Ireland).


Consultation description

This work will see the development of a new Integrated Care System (ICS) model in NI, whereby local providers and communities would be empowered to come together to plan, manage and deliver care for their local population based on a population health approach, with regional and specialised services planned, managed and delivered at a regional level.  We are consulting and seeking your views on the Draft Framework as this document will provide a blueprint for the future of planning and managing health and social care services in Northern Ireland. The document provides an overview and guidance on the proposed model to allow the system to design and adopt the relevant approaches, policies and structures required to bring the model forward.

Two workshops which will give stakeholders the opportunity to get involved with the consultation have been arranged for 2pm on 3 August 2021 and 2pm on 3 September 2021.  If you wish to register your interest in attending please email OrgChgDir@health-ni.gov.uk.

Registration of interest for the workshops will close on Tuesday 24 August 2021.

Integrated Care System (ICS) for Northern Ireland

A programme of work is underway on the development and implementation of an Integrated Care System (ICS) for Northern Ireland in line with Delivering Together. The ICS NI model signals a new way of planning, managing and delivering our health and social care services based on the specific needs of the population. An updated framework, which outlines the approach of this new model, is available at Integrated Care System Northern Ireland, along with all other information about the development of ICS NI.
