The Yorkshire and Bassetlaw ICS is one of 5 nationally that are in development and is made up of five place bases, Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. The ICS priorities that can be aligned to SYREC include:
- Investing in primary and community care, with general practice at the centre – in relation to CaSS
- Treating the whole person, looking after their mental and physical health – by providing skills for the workforce to deliver this
- Developing the right workforce, in the right place with the right skills – for now and in the future
- Using the best technology to keep people well at home, to support them to manage their own care and to connect staff so they can provide joined up care – by improving education and training for CaSS in the work environment
