Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board (ICB)
ICBs bring health and care organisations together in a new way with a greater emphasis on collaboration and shared responsibility for the health of the local population. They present a real opportunity to focus on more joined-up services by integrating care, reducing handoffs, tackling fragmentation and variations in care and outcomes, whilst improving population health and outcomes.
The Integrated Care Board (ICB) in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is responsible for the health and care of 1.1 million people across a geographical area of 1,048 miles. The ICB is aligned with two upper-tier local authorities, Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent Council.
The population is diverse with complex health and care needs, comprising both rural and urban areas, extremes of affluence, deprivation, as well as significant health inequalities.
