On 13th April NHS England published the initial 2022/23 budgets of the 42 Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) expected to go live from 1st July 2022, subject to legislative approval. The published tables break down the overall funding by core, primary care medical, running cost and other sources. Unusually, they also show the impact of the weighted capitation formula and therefore the variant funding per capita of each ICB.
This is of fundamental importance as it sets the ground rules for each ICB’s funding. All policy points to increased local variation as the integrated care changes are predicated on difference; local priorities, ways of working and the primary KPI of delivering a financial balance at ICB level. How may those pan out when there is up to a 37% difference in ICB funding per patient?
This is a highly significant publication that needs to be considered in national and local strategies but especially in mapping of the new systems and segmentation exercises.
