Earlier this year, Ministers asked NHS England to set out options for boundary alignment in integrated care systems (ICS).  In light of the ICS developments, the NHSE national directive is that across the country the ICS boundaries should be the same as those of local authorities wherever possible.

The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has adopted the recommendation of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England to move the Lakeside Healthcare GP practice (Oundle) into Northamptonshire ICS from Cambridge & Peterborough CCG by 1 July 2022.

Under new arrangements, the practice and all its registered patients will transfer to Northamptonshire Integrated Care System (ICS) on 1 July 2022.

An Oversight Group has been established to oversee the smooth transition. The Oversight Group has agreed an overarching principle that services will continue as they are post transfer to ensure equity of provision for the resident population of Oundle.

In support of this we have agreed that current providers of services within C&P will continue to see and treat the population of Oundle post transfer. If in future there is a transfer to a new provider this can be done as a managed transition.
