The Committee received a presentation on ‘Developing our initial Integrated Care Strategy in South Yorkshire’ and consider the NHS Five Year Joint Forward Plan for South Yorkshire report from Andrew Ashcroft – Director of Communications and Engagement – NHS South Yorkshire Marianna Hargreaves, Strategy and Transformation Lead, NHS South Yorkshire and Katy Davison, Deputy Director of Communications and Engagement, NHS South Yorkshire.


The presentation covered what the asks were in South Yorkshire.


August 2022 – The initial planning framework was set out and discussed with system leaders.  Four early inputs to the strategy development were agreed including refreshing population health needs.


December 2022 – How the health, social care and wellbeing needs of the local population were being met through the Integrated Care Strategy and this addressed the integration of health, social care and health related services.


June 2023 – 5 year forward plan described the NHS contribution to meeting the health needs of the local population and reflecting local priorities and addressing the four core purposes of the ICSs.  The plan had to be coherent with detailed planning returns and jointly developed across NHS Trusts and ICB.


The committee were advised that two phases were run to ensure that the Integrated Care Strategy for South Yorkshire was informed by the views of the public.


Phase 1 reviewed the existing citizen insight collected over recent years.  All the partners were invited to contribute and around 284 documents were reviewed. 


Phase 2 asked the public – “What matters to you about your health and wellbeing?”


A survey was launched to reach as many of our South Yorkshire citizens as possible by free, digital means.  The survey was promoted on social media accounts to the ICB membership and by word of mouth to partners from the NHS trusts, Healthwatch, VCSE umbrella organisations, local authorities, elected members, and the South Yorkshire combined Mayoral Authority who shared it on all of their networks.  It received 465 responses.  Healthwatch ran two Zoom focus group sessions.  There was also a social media advertising campaign targeted at the hard to reach through organic posts and post in community languages.


Alongside that, work was going on with partners from VCSE and Healthwatch through face-to-face engagement.

Barnsley – 25%

Doncaster – 30%

Rotherham – 15%
