The Department of Health has an ongoing mission to improve the wellbeing of the population, reduce health inequalities, and nurture more unified interdepartmental relationships. One aspect of this was to replace Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) with Integrated Care Boards (ICBs). ICBs take on the NHS planning functions previously held by the CCGs, as well as absorbing some planning roles from NHS England.
On 1 July 2022, the NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCG formally became the NHS Derby and Derbyshire ICB as the health statutory body for the population of Derby City and Derbyshire.
Tackling inequalities in health outcomes, the ICB’s now part of the Joined Up Care Derbyshire ICS, continuing to work with partners in local authority and the voluntary sector, and helping the NHS to support broader social and economic development.
