Governance

The Executive Lead for the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) Integrated Care System, is Felicity Cox. Joining the BLMK ICS at the end of November from the NHS England and NHS Improvement National team, Felicity brings with her a wealth of experience from her current role as Director of Quality, Transformation and Delivery for Specialised Services. She already has good insight into the local health system having previously worked in Community Trusts in BLMK.

The chief officers of each of the 15 partner organisations meet fortnightly at the ICS CEO group. The ICS CEO Group is not a statutory decision-making body in its own right because the ICS is not an organisation, rather a partnership of existing organisations. All partners have equal opportunity for involvement and are provided with the same information on key issues, plans and proposals. Key decisions will be taken through the Boards of partner organisations.
