About the north and east ICA

The north and east ICA is the place-based geography that consists of:

  • PCNs
  • adult social care
  • adult community services (including mental health)
  • public health
  • voluntary sector

The relationship between all partners is developing and will be key when the integrated care board (ICB) is in place from July 2022. Working together for the benefit of the population of north and east Cornwall will be vital to make best use of resources.

Hospitals in the north and east ICA

The area is rural with significant distances for people to travel to the main acute hospitals in Truro, Plymouth and Barnstable. The geography also provides challenges in accessing outpatient services, x-ray and travel times for urgent visits out of hours and emergency vehicles.
