NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) is due to be formally established on 1 July 2022 when its holds its first official meeting of the board.
The ICB will become a key part of the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, replacing Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) as the statutory organisation with responsibility for NHS functions and budgets. The Health and Care Partnership is one of 42 Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) across England, comprising of NHS organisations, local councils, health and care providers, and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
The establishment of ICBs is part of plans set out in the Health and Care Act 2022 to place ICSs on a statutory footing, empowering partners to work closer together to better join up health and care services, improve population health, reduce health inequalities, enhance productivity and value for money, and help support broader social and economic development.
Success for the ICS will be built on, and by, a wide leadership community, who are committed to working together in partnership to improve the health and care of the 1.7 million people we serve. This is a community of equals, with shared purpose, willing to think, plan and work together to continually develop a sustainable health and care system.
Details and papers regarding this meeting are available at www.humberandnorthyorkshire.icb.nhs.uk/meetings-and-papers.
A summary of the changes to Integrated Care Systems from 1 July 2022 is available.
