Our NHS Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board (NHS Gloucestershire) is responsible for planning and buying services to meet the health needs of local people. In 2023/24 we will have a budget of £1.2bn to meet the population needs of our local population and we employ 496 colleagues with 385.9wte, as of 31st March 2023.
We are working with partners to ensure the county provides the best possible care. Alongside our communities, we want to improve health, improve access to high quality care and support when needed and make Gloucestershire a better place for the future.
We will do this by:
Reducing waiting times for appointments, treatment and operations as we recover from the pandemic
Supporting improvements in urgent and emergency care
Improving access to care outside of hospital, as close to home as possible
Supporting people with mental health needs, learning disabilities and autism
Developing our workforce and making the most of new technology
Tackling health inequalities.
Health and care services will still be available in people’s homes, GP surgeries, communities and in hospitals, but partners will work ever more closely together to plan and provide advice, support and care.
We will work hand in glove with our One Gloucestershire Health and Wellbeing Partnership – ensuring a joined-up approach across health, social care, public health and the wider public, voluntary and community sector.
Our Board is accountable for the decision making of the organisation. They make sure that we make best use of the money available and buying and developing health services that meet the needs of local people.
Our Board also makes sure that there is transparency and accountability with decision making and supports localities with the development of programmes and projects to support local communities.
The Board includes the Chair of the Integrated Care System (ICS), Directors of NHSG, partner members and independent Non-Executive Directors (members who represent the views of local people and communities).
