Additional documents:


The Board received a report which presented an interim care strategy, setting out how the assessed needs of the population could be met by the Integrated Care System (ICS).


Danielle Oum (C&W ICS) introduced the strategy on behalf of the Integrated Care Board (ICB) and recognised that a lot of the officers present had been involved in the development of the strategy, with work taking place in a relatively short timeframe and as a result of a fairly comprehensive engagement programme involving key stake holders, community and partners.  She described it as an alliterative process, the basis of a forward plan which would be worked on.
