Healthcare Leader’s ICB 101 series introduces the aims and organisations of the new NHS leaders through exclusive interviews with NHS CEOs.

Healthcare Leader ICB 101 series

The Healthcare Leader ICB 101 interviews cover the unique aspects of each NHS integrated care board (ICB), the organisations established in July 2022, which are now responsible for running the NHS budget in their area.  

The series features ten of the 42 leaders so far including Mark Fisher CEO of Greater Manchester, Shane Devlin, chief executive of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) and Tracey Bleakley chief executive of NHS Norfolk and Waveney.

The interviews are part of our new ICB Hub where the latest developments in each NHS region are highlighted along with key ICB facts.

Editor Victoria Vaughan says: ‘There is a huge amount of optimism from the new integrated care board leaders and their mission to reduce health inequalities but relatively little is known about the plans of this whole new tranche of NHS leadership.

‘Our Healthcare Leader ICB 101 interviews seek to provide an overview of the ICB areas and the current thinking of the new NHS leaders, particularly with regard to primary care, and to shed light on what NHS system working means for primary care staff and patients.’

In July last year clinical commissioning groups were dissolved, and their staff were transferred into ICBs. This change was made to shift the way of working from competition to collaboration and to bring together health and care with the aims of better health for everyone, better care for all, efficient use of NHS resources, and to enhance the NHS contribution to social and economic regeneration.

ICBs represent the NHS in the wider integrated care partnerships as part of the integrated care system.

Healthcare Leader aims to support NHS system leaders in taking forward blueprints for the future of health and social care in their places and neighbourhoods.

Visit our new ICB Hub to find out the latest developments in each NHS region. The site also features expert opinion, reports and insight on the aims of ICBs as well as the latest news.
