IPC (Integrated Personal Commissioning) is an NHS England initiative. It is a new approach to joining up health, social care and other services at the level of the individual. It enables people, carers and families to blend and control the resources available around them and in their community, and across health and social care systems in order to ‘commission’ their own care by developing a personalised care and support plan. It also pulls together the funding from personal health budgets (PHB) and personal budgets. In tandem, IPC also supports people to develop their knowledge, skills and confidence to self-manage through partnerships with the voluntary and community sector (VCSE), community capacity building and peer support. More details of the IPC Programme can be found on the following links - www.england.nhs.uk/personalised-health-and-care-framework/
Lincolnshire is one of nine demonstrator sites nationally that is delivering the IPC programme. The leaflet below has been produced by the Lincolnshire IPC Co-Production Group:

Every-One is the Voluntary Sector Lead Partner for the IPC Programme in Lincolnshire. We attend Programme Board meetings, Collaborative Development Group meetings for Community Capacity, Peer Support & Working Together. We are also active members of the Voluntary Sector Network for IPC and support programme workstream development. We have also provided Project Support Workers to help facilitate Care and Support Plans. Here at Every-One’s, personalisation is a core part of our ethos and we believe that people should be at the centre of their health and wellbeing rather than the process. Every-One believes that in order to exercise choice and control, people need support to get started and to have the confidence to use it. We aim to work with organisations and individuals through family and community networks to ensure that people are given every opportunity to self-manage where possible.
