Derbyshire is made up of several NHS trusts, all working together to ensure the highest quality of care is delivered to Derbyshire Residents. The Health and Care Bill 2022 created Integrated Care Boards (ICB) as replacements for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). An ICB is a statutory body which brings together NHS organisations and partners to improve population health and establish shared priorities within the local NHS.
ICBs will replace CCGs as the local statutory NHS body, building on successful work by all our health and care organisations including the CCG over the last 5 years.
