Who we are and what we do
NHS Dorset is the public name of NHS Dorset Integrated Care Board (ICB).
It will undertake the statutory responsibilities of the current clinical commissioning group (CCG) and will also be responsible for planning to meet the healthcare needs of people and communities in Dorset.
NHS Dorset will work with others to:
Improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
Tackle inequalities in outcome and access
Enhance productivity and value for money
Help the NHS deliver broader social and economic development, particularly post the COVID-19 pandemic
NHS Dorset will listen to people and communities across Dorset, see things from their perspective, and co-design the services that people really need going forward, so that we can support people to live healthy and happy lives from cradle to old age.
