The Walsall Together partnership is part of a wider system of health and social care called The Black Country and West Birmingham Integrated Case System (ICS) formally known as the Black Country and West Birmingham Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). 

In line with the NHS Long Term Plan the Black Country and West Birmingham Integrated Care System (ICS) was formed in April 2021 and is now working towards becoming a statutory organisation (subject to legislation ) by April 2022. 

As an ICS, they are jointly responsible for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health and care outcomes of 1.5 million people in the Black Country and West Birmingham. Within the ICS there are five places covering large populations (Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, West Birmingham, Wolverhampton). 

Each place has an Integrated Care Partnership like Walsall Together who are responsible for designing and delivering health and social care services that meet the needs of its local population.
