In Hampshire and Isle of Wight, our central focus is on ensuring our residents receive the best possible care and lead independent, healthy lives, as we work ever more closely and collaboratively.
The creation of the Integrated Care Board from 1 July marks a new milestone for the NHS and paves the way for us to transform how we work and to deliver our ambitions for our communities.
Our success will be measured by the improvements we deliver in population health, quality of care and equity of access and this cannot be delivered through a change in organisational structures alone.
Here you can find out more about our Integrated Care Board members.
Details of the next meeting of the Board and meeting papers are available here.
