What is it?

The Integrated Commissioning Board aims to make sure partners maximise opportunities to commission services better, in an integrated manner.

This is to support increased consistency in service provision, delivery of better value for money, economies of scale, better engagement, market shaping and market management and improved outcomes for residents.

To make sure we have financial and service sustainability for the future we need to work jointly across health and social care to commission capacity and capability in the community to meet the needs of local people in the most cost-effective way.

This is to support people to maintain their independence and well being and in turn will prevent unnecessary escalation of needs and the provision of more expensive services.
