NHS England and NHS Improvement are asking all Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to extend or introduce the virtual ward model. This document supports ICSs with their strategic and financial decisions on virtual ward planning and implementation. Designed for ICS leadership teams, but will also be helpful for provider organisations as they plan together to implement this model.

This guidance starts a two-year funded transformation programme to support the development of virtual wards operating to standardised clinical models, across every area of England.
