Following discussions with our members, NHSCC CEO and director of the ICS Network at the NHS Confederation Lou Patten and NHSCC Chair Dr Graham Jackson have written an open letter to the Minister for Health Edward Argar MP about the importance of embedding clinical leadership in Integrated Care Systems.
