Working as part of Dorset’s Integrated Care System

Everyone in Dorset deserves to live well. That is why our NHS organisations, councils, public services and voluntary and community partners are working together as an Integrated Care

System (ICS).

We are joining up to tackle all the things that affect our health and wellbeing, make real

change, and improve things for our communities.

Dorset ICS is made up of:

  • NHS Dorset Integrated Care Board
  • University Hospitals Dorset Foundation Trust
  • Dorset County Hospital Foundation Trust
  • Dorset HealthCare University Foundation Trust
  • Dorset Council
  • Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole Council
  • 194 town and parish councils
  • 18 primary care networks (made up of 80 GP practices)
  • Southwestern Ambulance Service Foundation Trust
  • Dorset Police
  • Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service
  • 7,300 voluntary organisations

What we do

The Health and Care Bill puts ICSs on a statutory footing empowering them to better join up health and care services, improve population health, and reduce health inequalities.

ICSs have four core purposes:

  • Improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
  • Tackle inequalities in outcomes, experience, and access
  • Enhance productivity and value for money
  • Help the NHS support broader social and economic development

Each ICS is led by an NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB), an organisation with responsibility NHS functions and budgets, and an Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), a statutory committee bringing together all system partners to produce a health and care strategy.
