Suffolk & North East Essex Shadow Integrated Care System

Day set for union engagement event

July 2019

Union engagement day taking place

The Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System’s Strategic Partnership Forum has been in existence for over a year.  It comprises representation from UNISON, the Royal College of Nursing, Royal College of Midwives and British Medical Association among others.


The group meets once every six weeks to highlight key areas of achievement or development from within the system and provides staff side representatives an opportunity to ask questions about issues concerning workforce, communications, engagement and policy related issues.


The group has recently designed a union engagement day for staff side colleagues which will include presentations from a number of ICS related programmes.  On the agenda will be presentations about urgent and emergency care, communications and workforce.  There will also be a presentation from union colleagues about the impact ICS will have on colleagues as well as examples of effective union engagement from other systems.


The next Can Do newsletter will include an update on the day.
