Throughout our integrated care system, a variety of partners work together across a complex health and care landscape, including hospital trusts.

Our Integrated Care Board (ICB) is responsible for commissioning (buying) health services for our patients such as planned hospital care, rehabilitative care, and urgent and emergency care.
