Integrated Care Board (ICB)

The NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board is the NHS organisation responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) healthcare services for everyone registered with a GP in Dudley.

The types of services we commission include:

  • Elective hospital care
  • Rehabilitation care
  • Urgent and emergency care
  • Most community health services
  • Mental health and learning disability services

Our work is overseen by a Governing Body which includes local GPs, Healthwatch Dudley, Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (MBC) representatives, Lay Members and Senior Managers.
