System P is the whole system approach to addressing multiagency, multisector challenges that negatively impact population health and will deliver transformational change in service provision through collaborative working.

System P is a Cheshire & Merseyside ICS funded programme, which commenced in September 2021. This initial phase will run through to the end of March 2023. The programme uses Bridges to Health segmentation methodology, which has been endorsed by NHS England. Segmentation aims to categorise the population according to health status, health care needs and priorities. This methodology identifies groups of people who share characteristics that influence the way they interact with health and care services.

Focus in the first phase of System P is around the Complex Lives and Frailty & Dementia segments. Insight packs are available for each of these segments, for each CCG across Cheshire & Merseyside. ICS level reports are also available.
