Purpose of the Bedfordshire Care Alliance Committee:
The Bedfordshire Care Alliance (BCA) is a non-statutory committee. The Committee is accountable to the Board of the ICB and reports through governance structures in partner organisations. It is responsible for making decisions on matters that have been delegated to it by the Board of the ICB or other constituent partner members.
The overall aims of the Committee are to bring health and care partners across Bedfordshire together to work collaboratively and hold joint accountability for:
- Addressing unwarranted variation in quality, access and outcomes that people experience in different parts of Bedfordshire;
- Designing, planning and organising health services integrated with social care provision in Bedfordshire – making sure resources are in the right place for the best outcomes;
- Focusing on the things we need to do once across Bedfordshire – standardise where we can, and it makes sense to do so; and
- Supporting place priorities with coherent engagement from providers covering larger footprint and tailoring where particular place population need requires it.

15 June 2023
21 September 2023
