While integrated care systems are expected to work autonomously, they should take into account NHS England and NHS Improvement’s priorities. The Eye Care Planning and Implementation Guidance 2021/22 explains how systems should plan local eye care recovery and transformation in line with the requirements of the NHS England 2021/22 Priorities and Operational Planning Guidance.
