ICS leadership and websites§

The 42 integrated care systems (ICSs), created under the Health and Care Act (2022), each have an integrated care board (ICB), an NHS body responsible for developing a plan for meeting the health needs of the population, managing the NHS budget and arranging for the provision of health services in the ICS area.

Both ICB and ICS website links and leadership details are available at the link below. In some cases, one website serves for both ICB and ICS.
