Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Partnership Strategies and Plans The CCG is part of a partnership of 28 health and social care organisations working together to improve the wellbeing of people living in North East Lincolnshire and its wider neighbours in the area referred to as Humber, Coast and Vale.  

North East Lincolnshire CCG Engagement Strategy

The aim of this strategy is to provide the CCG Governing Body, Council of Members, partner organisations and the public with not only a vision of how engagement should be shaped but also a route map of how this activity will influence our work  
North East Lincolnshire CCG Primary Care Strategy 2019-2024 The North East Lincolnshire locality, or ‘place’, is working towards improving outcomes for individuals through integrated care provision, delivered by a partnership of organisations: the Integrated Care Partnership (ICP). General practice sits firmly at the heart of this, and primary care has a significant part to play in supporting self-management and ensuring individuals get the right care at the right time, when they need it. The ICP will work collaboratively across the Humber, Coast and Vale Partnership footprint (or Integrated Care System – ICS) to ensure access for the local population to good quality care for services that are delivered across a wider footprint.

Despite best efforts to regulate the local care market, services are interrupted and sometimes fail.  Difficulties can occur for many reasons.   The role of commissioners is to monitor and identify threats within provider organisations and to intervene early where appropriate.

This policy and procedure details how North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (‘the CCG’), with the membership of the Market Intelligence/Failing Services Group (‘the MIFS Group’), will coordinate and manage responses to a service interruption or failure.  Actions and procedure will differ depending on the type of service provision in question.
