NHS and social care organisations across Buckinghamshire have a strong track record of working together to deliver better, safer and more joined up health and care for the local communities we serve – but we are ambitious to do more.

Now we are leading the way in becoming one of the first Integrated Care Systems around the country. This will mean we can fast track improvements such as providing more care closer to home to reduce lengths of stay in hospital; GPs and mental health teams working alongside hospital teams in A&E; improving access to care so people no longer get ‘lost in the system’; and doing more to help people stay well and live independently for longer.

We also want to make Buckinghamshire an exciting and appealing place to work, helping us to attract, recruit and retain the best possible staff to deliver our health and social care services.

The partners involved in the Buckinghamshire Integrated Care System are NHS Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern Clinical Commissioning Groups, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Buckinghamshire County Council, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, FedBucks and South Central Ambulance Service.
