New regulations on Integrated Care Board exceptions to core responsibility

With the establishment of statutory Integrated Care Boards on 1 July 2022, new regulations have been published to reflect the changes introduced under the Health and Care Act 2022. In particular, the replacement of CCGs by ICBs and to provide some continuity in the ongoing arrangements for commissioning NHS services in England.

ICBs must arrange the provision of secondary care services for persons for whom they have core responsibility. This regulation, The National Health Service (Integrated Care Boards: Exceptions to Core Responsibility) Regulations 2022, sets out the list of people that are exceptions to the group of people for whom an ICB will ordinarily have core responsibility. For example, persons who are usually resident in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales and who are registered with a provider of NHS primary medical services (i.e. a GP) in England are exceptions to the group of people for whom an ICB will have core responsibility.

We will update you with further new regulations as they are published.
