What is an ‘Intelligence Function’? What value can they add to decision making? How can they be configured and who needs to be involved? What lessons can be drawn from current practice?

In readiness for the introduction of the NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) guidance for Integrated Care System (ICS) ‘Intelligence Functions’ and supporting toolkit, the Strategy Unit is hosting a series of free webinars addressing these questions.

There are four webinars:

  1. Learning from South West London Health and Care Partnership. Tuesday 3rd May, 11:00-12:00
  2. Learning from Kent and Medway ICS. Tuesday 3rd May, 14:00-15:00
  3. Learning from the Midlands Decision Support Network and Black Country and West Birmingham. Wednesday 4th May, 10:00-11:00
  4. Learning from the Local Knowledge and Intelligence Service, Friday 6th May, 14:00-15:00

More details, including how to register are below.

The aim of the webinars is to help analytical communities across the NHS and other stakeholders develop their Intelligence Functions. Case studies from the toolkit developed for NHSE/I by the Strategy Unit, with advisory input from Nuffield Trust, will be shared as part of the webinars.

Through these case studies, you will learn from systems and networks who have already made progress in enhancing their system-level intelligence. You will also be supported to understand the different approaches you can take and the support available to you in doing so.

The webinars will be practical, interactive sessions with those who have already made a start; talking about the opportunities and challenges of building cross-system intelligence. So, if you’re thinking of setting up, developing, leading or collaborating with an ICS intelligence function, don’t miss out on this invaluable opportunity.

If you have any queries regarding the webinars, please contact Karen Bradley or Romaana Kapadi

We look forward to seeing you there!
