ICBs utilise SHAPE for service and estates planning

Several ICBs are utilising SHAPE Local to support service and estates planning. SHAPE Local atlases for ICBs are prepopulated with all the information contained within Place, the free version of SHAPE, and enhanced with localised data sets. SHAPE Local are private atlases, only viewable to your chosen users and functionality is tailored to suit project needs.  

ICBs are currently utilising SHAPE Local to: 

  • Map flu vaccinations to compare against COVID vaccination uptake rates, identifying areas where uptake is not equal. 
  • Map GP online services to understand take up and utilisation. These include online records, appointments and prescriptions. 
  • Enhance estates information with images, floor plans and images to support operational estate management. 
  • Map staff postcodes and travel times against office and service locations to inform resource and service planning.
  • Map community service provider properties, combined with primary care and acute estate information already available, to support estates planning.
