Who we are
Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care Board (ICB) will secure the provision of health services by taking on the commissioning functions of the previous 3 CCGs (now abolished), develop and maintain a plan to meet the health needs of our population, set out the strategic direction for our Integrated Care System (ICS) and agree an annual capital resource use plan.
The (ICB) has various roles and responsibilities, a major part of our work involves making sure that:
- contracts are in place with local health service providers;
- routine and emergency NHS services are available to patients;
- those services provide high quality care and value for money; and
- paying those services for the care and treatment they have provided.
This is called “commissioning”. For further information please refer to the ‘About us’ section of the website
Accurate, timely and relevant information is essential for our work to help us to design and plan current and future health and care services, evidence and review our decisions and manage budgets.
