As a software company, we know that the introduction of ICSs in spring 2022 could bring significant changes for you as a pharma professional in terms of your personal address book.
The shift means you are going to need to know what’s changing and who’s where, as existing GP practices become part of a locality, arranged into the new ICS network.
“It’s clear that in some places, lead personnel within an ICS may change from their previous responsibility. For example, doctors who’ve been responsible for the care of certain patients in their practice area for years – people with diabetes, let’s say – could be replaced by a different GP in the same ICS. All in the pursuit of greater efficiencies, better patient outcomes, and lower costs.”
(Andrew Norman, Director, Inspiremed)
As the changes take effect, it will be for you to understand the new structures – and which practices sit within each ICS grouping. And, vitally, to know the key personnel and decision makers within those new structures. As Scott McKenzie, Independent Management Consultant working inside the NHS, writes:
“Where ICSs are developing, it’s essential to map the structures and the people leading within these, as well as unearthing those who have influence within the system.”
