Derby & Derbyshire Integrated Care Board
Subscribe to Newsletter: Newsletter » Joined Up Care Derbyshire
The Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board – which will be known as NHS Derby and Derbyshire – became an NHS statutory organisation on 1 July 2022 and has direct responsibility for:
- the local NHS budget – planning and commissioning of services working closely with partners across the system
- the delivery of high quality and safe local health and care services
- producing a five-year delivery plan.
The ICB also takes on additional functions previously held by CCGs and some additional commissioning responsibilities – such as primary care, dentistry, optometry, pharmaceutical – previously held by NHS England.
The ICB brings together all NHS organisations in Derby and Derbyshire as an NHS executive to manage NHS delivery and facilitates the work of the Integrated Care System, including supporting the coordination and implementation of our Integrated Care Strategy.
The ICB is managed by a Board and membership includes senior officers from local NHS organisations and local authorities, as well as executive and non-executive members of the ICB itself. The ICB is led by our Chair, Richard Wright, and our Chief Executive, Dr Chris Clayton. Its role is to join up health and care services, improve people’s health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
Joined Up Care Derbyshire is a partnership of organisations and is based on a shared vision to improve the health and well-being of our local people. The benefit of an ICS is that it brings existing organisations closer together, working in an integrated way to improve care for our local people.
