NHS Dorset is the public name of NHS Dorset Integrated Care Board (ICB), which is set to come into being on 1 July 2022.

NHS Dorset will undertake the statutory responsibilities of the current clinical commissioning croup (CCG) and will also be responsible for planning to meet the healthcare needs of people and communities in Dorset. NHS Dorset will work with others to:

  • Improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
  • Tackle inequalities in outcome and access
  • Enhance productivity and value for money
  • Help the NHS deliver broader social and economic development, particularly post the COVID-19 pandemic.

NHS Dorset will listen to people and communities across Dorset, see things from their perspective, and co-design the services that people really need going forward, so that we can support people to live healthy and happy lives from cradle to old age.
