WELCOME to the second edition of the Integrated Care Programme (ICP) staff e-bulletin.

In this newsletter we cover the official launch of the Integrated Care Organisation on 1 July – a truly historic moment in the history of Salford health and social care system.

We also bring updates of work on-going with GPs and practice staff – whose efforts have resulted in the new Salford Primary Care Together body, detailed in this bulletin.

You’ll also find a comprehensive piece on Multi-Disciplinary Groups and how they work and, once again, we can bring you stories of success: this time in the form of Salford’s Malnutrition Taskforce scooping a prestigious award.

Remember, this bulletin is intended to complement the monthly Integrated Care Organisation (ICO) staff bulletin which you should also be receiving or have access to.

We hope you find both of interest.
