Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) meetings – How to ask a question

If you’d like to ask our ICP a pre-submitted question, you can do so under Part 1 of the meeting.

It is essential that sufficient time remains for the conduct of normal ICP business and the opportunity for questions will be time limited.

Questions should be succinct and relevant to the business of NHS Dorset Integrated Care Partnership (ICP).

If a question is particularly complex, it may be necessary to provide a general response to the question at the meeting with a more detailed response given in writing following the meeting.

In order to respond as fully as possible, we ask that questions be submitted to the Corporate Office no later than three working days prior to the meeting.

The Chair will read out any pre-submitted questions and associated response, both of which will be recorded in the ICP minutes and published on the website with the papers for the next ICP meeting.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and the timescale in seeing the response will cause an issue, please contact the Corporate Office.

Following the meeting, any questions and response not able to be raised or answered in full at the meeting will be put on a Q&A section on this page.

The Chair reserves the right to refuse any written question that is:

  • Confidential or sensitive

  • An individual complaint or matter relating to an individual’s healthcare

  • Deemed to be overly political, defamatory or vexatious

  • Substantially the same as a question that has previously been answered
