Hertfordshire and West Essex NHS ICB - Home page

NHS Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care Board (ICB) is the local NHS organisation that plans and oversees how NHS money is spent in our area and makes sure health services work well and are of high quality.

The ICB’s role is to join up health and care services, improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities, so that we can all live better, healthier and longer lives.

We have a budget, set by NHS England, of around £2.8 billion a year, to pay for the majority of the health services used by the 1.6 million people who live in this area. Three geographically-based Health and Care Partnerships – in west Essex, south and west Hertfordshire and east and north Hertfordshire, serve our communities.
