Our constitution

The Health and Care Act 2022 dissolved Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and transferred statutory functions (duties and powers) to Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) on 1 July 2022. ICBs now have a statutory responsibility for commissioning services for the population within available resources.

Each ICB has a constitution setting out the board membership and governance arrangements for the organisation. As required by the Act, Clinical Commissioning Groups, working with designate ICB leaders, engaged with key local stakeholders in developing the constitutions for each ICB before proposing them to NHS England.

The ICB constitution, and other associated governance documents, was presented to the board during the meeting held on 1 July 2022. All papers and documents from this meeting can be found by clicking here.
