How our CCG is run

Integrated Care Board (ICB) Constitution Involvement

The new Health and Social Care Bill is currently making its way through Parliament and if successful will come into being in July 2022.  The purpose of the proposals is to integrate health and care systems to provide a more joined up service for our populations and improve both their experience and health.

As part of the Integrated Care System a new Integrated Care Board will be created across West Yorkshire, taking on many of the responsibilities of the current Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). CCGs as an organisation will then cease to exist, including Bradford District and Craven CCG, but the employment of colleagues and most commissioning responsibilities will pass to the ICB.

It is therefore necessary to have a constitution for the ICB outlining its duties and how it will conduct business. Local organisations and individuals were invited to read and comment on the ICB draft constitution between Monday 8 November 2021 and Friday 14 January 2022.

To learn more about Integrated Care Systems legislation please visit the West Yorkshire Health partnership website.

Our constitution sets out the principles, rules and procedures for how our CCG is run.

Our constitution includes information about how we arrange day decision making and develop our long term plans. You can read about our plans for the CCG here.

The current version of the constitution was approved by the CCG governing body on 13 July 2021. The scheme of reservation and delegation is available to read here. The financial scheme of delegation can be found in our constitution, appendix four.
