Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB

Our Board

The ICB is a unitary board, which means all members are collectively and corporately accountable for organisational performance. The purpose of the board is to govern effectively and in doing so, build patient, public and stakeholder confidence that their healthcare is in safe hands.

The board will be responsible for:

  • formulating strategy for the organisation
  • holding the organisation to account for the delivery of the strategy; by being accountable for ensuring the organisation operates effectively and with openness, transparency and candour and by seeking assurance that systems of control are robust and reliable
  • shaping a healthy culture for the organisation and the wider ICS partnership.
