The Clinical Commissioning Group ceased to exist from the 1 July 2022. The Integrated Care System (ICS) is made of up two core statutory elements at system level, where major decisions are made, and overarching strategies agreed. The Integrated Care Boards (ICB) replace CCGs and are focused on the core NHS services, with responsibilities including NHS funding, commissioning and workplace planning. The Integrated Care Partnerships (ICP) have a broad focus, covering ICB-wide strategy, public health, social care, and wider issues impacting the health and wellbeing of the population. There will continue to a Place element within the ICS, and this will involve the planning of localised services and secondary and community care. NHS England sees ‘place’ as the key driver of change within ICSs and they are expected to be where the majority of work actually occurs. Data will continue to available at CCG level for some time and as a result CCG will still be referenced within our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, and will gradually be replaced over time as the new system is embedded and new data becomes available at the new geographical levels.
