Including Glossop in the new Derbyshire Integrated Care System (ICS)

What has happened so far?

Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) are designed to help healthcare (usually provided by the NHS) and social care (usually provided by your local authority or local council) work more closely together so that you receive the best care we can jointly provide.

At the moment, healthcare for people in Glossop is provided by the NHS in Tameside and Glossop, and social care is provided by our local authorities in Derbyshire. In the summer, the government decided that Glossop healthcare services should not move into the Greater Manchester ICS but instead move to the Derby and Derbyshire ICS to enable that closer joint working.

Listening to you and keeping you informed

We understand that health and social care is extremely important to people, and that they are likely to have questions such as: "Will GP arrangements change?", "What happens if an emergency ambulance is required?", and "Will patients still have a choice about where they receive their treatment?"

Derbyshire ICS held some listening groups to gather people's thoughts and comments. These sessions were facilitated by senior leaders who addressed and responded to the input received. We have collected ideas and comments from sessions and put them into a document. You can read this document and watch recordings of the sessions on the 'Including Glossop in the Derbyshire Integrated Care System' page on the Derbyshire Involvement website.

In the meantime, the following are ways to find out more information:

Engagement Platform - Derbyshire ICS have collated all the questions and concerns raised through all channels including community networks, our listening events, emails, MP enquiries, social media and other routes. This has been summarised into a feedback document.

You can ask questions via this portal and also find a recording of the listening events, and future dates for our community based events which may be planned.
