Under the Health and Care Act 2022 (effective from 1st July 2022), the planning, arranging and managing of most local health care has been transferred from clinical commissioning groups to integrated care boards. This website will remain live for several months while archiving takes place, but it will not be updated. You may also be directed back this website temporarily where content has not yet been added to the integrated care board’s website. You will only be redirected to this site where the content remains the most up-to-date and correct version.
