What is the Integrated Care Board (ICB)?

NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board is responsible for the day-to-day running of the NHS for our local area. We consider our local population’s needs, arrange for the provision of services and manage the NHS budget.

Nationally, ICBs were legally established on 1 July 2022, and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) were abolished.

The information in our ICB Organogram provides a summary of information about the emerging structures in our ICB.

The King’s Fund has also produced a series of structure diagrams and a short animation about the NHS.

Our priorities

As the first year under the new structures develops, we are working on these immediate priorities:

  • We will continue recruiting into key posts for the Integrated Care Board over the summer.
  • We will work together to develop an Integrated Care Strategy, guided by a new public engagement exercise, running from July 1 – September 25
  • This includes a whole-population survey exploring what keeps people happy, healthy and well, alongside more in-depth community engagement and workshops.
