Integrated care systems (ICSs) are partnerships of health and care organisations, local government, and the voluntary sector. They exist to improve population health, tackle health inequalities, enhance productivity and help the NHS support broader social and economic development. They took on statutory form following the implementation of proposed legislation from July 2022 and comprise an Integrated Care Board (ICB) and Integrated Care Partnership (ICP). The Dorset Integrated Care Board took on Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group’s functions as well as broader strategic responsibility for overseeing healthcare strategies for the system.
