North London Partners in health and care

Integrated Care System leadership team


As part of continuing our development the Integrated Care System (ICS) for North Central London (NCL), we continue to develop an ICS leadership team.  The remit of the team is to:

  •  Continue to ensure that Major Incident Gold ICS decision-making processes are in place to ensure the operational incident response to C19 level 3 major incident is running effectively
  • Make the decisions required to be made at ICS level to re set health and care services in line with planning guidance ‘The Journey to a New NHS’
  • Oversee the refresh/rebrand of the STP Long Term Plan response and the system financial plan, and the co-production of refreshing ICS vision and strategy
  • Approve the establishment and objectives of ICS level projects and programmes; and
  • Oversee and assure the delivery of programme objectives

The membership of the leadership team will evolve in response to circumstances and will be formally reviewed every six months.  There are some core elements, of people substantively appointed to ICS roles:  Rob Hurd, ICS lead; Frances O’Callaghan, CCG Accountable Officer; Dr Jo Sauvage, CCG Chair and medical lead; and Will Huxter, Director of Strategy. 

The developing Gold and ICS leadership team is an iterative and evolving process that needs to align with other elements of ICS design that are on-going including developing Strategic Commissioning, the potential provider alliance and local borough integrated care partnerships.
