NHS Derby & Derbyshire ICB

The Health and Care Bill 2022 created Integrated Care Boards (ICB) as replacements for Clinical Commissioning Groups. 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 replaced Clinical Commissioning Groups as the local statutory NHS body, building on successful work by all our health and care organisations including the CCG over the last five years.

The Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board – which is now 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, John MacDonald, 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.
