Integrated Personal Commissioning

About the programme

The Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) programme is a voluntary approach to person-centred health and social care. It aims to:

  • Join up health and social care services so people with complex needs, carers and families can shape care that is effective and meaningful to them in their lives.
  • Offer councils, NHS commissioners and providers technical support, regulation and financial flexibility to address the barriers they may experience as they change their systems.
  • Partner with the Voluntary sector to design effective approaches to change, support individuals and drive the cultural changes needed.

Self Help UK is the VS CO IPC Lead for Nottinghamshire and will be co-ordinating events for people receiving Personal Budgets to attend and shape the future of service. Carers of those with Personal Budgets are also welcome and those parent/carers of young people and children with Education and Health Care Plans.

​​​​​IPC is already making a big difference to people’s lives. This is being achieved by: working in partnership with people, having a better conversation to understand what’s working, not working and what they want to achieve and by giving people more control to organise their own support with a Personal Health Budget (PHB).
