star this property answer text <p>Integrated Care Organisations’ is not a term currently used by NHS England, so the answer below refers to Integrated Care Providers.</p><p> </p><p>‘Integrated Care Provider’ (ICP) is a term used to describe a provider that is responsible for the integrated provision of general practice, wider National Health Service and potentially local authority services, which enters into an ICP contract with the commissioner(s) of those services. The ICP would be a ‘lead’ provider organisation, and so would be contractually responsible for delivering integrated services for local people. An ICP is not a new type of legal entity, but simply the name for a provider organisation awarded an ICP contract. The ICP contract is itself a variant of the generic NHS Standard Contract (which is already used to commission a broad range of NHS services) and has been specifically designed to enable integration through a single contract that could be used to commission both primary medical services and other health and care services.</p><p> </p><p>There are not yet any ICPs in place in England. However, NHS England plans to study the effects of the first ICP contracts that come into being and share learning with others that may follow. Where a clinical commissioning group (CCG) proposes to use the ICP contract in future, proposals will be subject to successful completion of the Integrated Support and Assurance Process, managed by NHS England and NHS Improvement, before the ICP Contract is awarded.</p><p> </p><p>Further information about ICPs is available in NHS England’s package of consultation materials and response to consultation, which are available at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/consultation/proposed-contracting-arrangements-for-icps/" target="_blank">https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/consultation/proposed-contracting-arrangements-for-icps/</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Food safety policy is the responsibility of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), a non-Ministerial Government Department, which works to protect public health and consumers' wider interests in food. The FSA is concerned with the safety of food right along the food supply chain, from when it is produced, to when it is served on the plate. As the national authority responsible for food safety, we set the regulations that food businesses are obliged to follow, and work with local authorities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to make sure those regulations are enforced.</p><p>The FSA has delivered a robust regulatory regime that is responsive, scientifically-based and able to provide a high level of assurance for consumers in the food they eat. The FSA is working closely with consumers, local government and industry stakeholders, on modernising the regulatory regime so that it is more risk-based, data-driven and fit-for-purpose.</p><p>For example, the FSA has worked closely with industry on reducing Campylobacter contamination over a number of years. This has seen the highest contamination levels of Campylobacter fall from an average of 19% in 2014/15 to 5% in 2016/17 in surveys of whole, UK produced chicken undertaken at retail level. Latest levels according to major retailers’ data show an average of 3.1% for October-December 2018.</p><p>As part of the FSA’s preparations for EU Exit and regulatory reform, the FSA is heavily investing in its scientific capability and capacity, strengthening its approach to surveillance and horizon scanning, and ensuring a cost-effective national and coordinated approach to food crime.</p><p>The FSA is currently reviewing its strategy, making sure that the Department can respond to both existing and emerging challenges, focusing on key issues and societal developments, such as allergens, so that consumers can continue to enjoy food they can trust.</p>
