Committee examines role of new health bodies in delivering local care

4 November 2022

The Health and Social Care Committee examines how newly established bodies will deliver joined-up health and care services to meet the needs of local populations.


Tuesday 8 November, Committee Room 16, Palace of Westminster

At 11.00am

  • Rob Webster CBE, Chief Executive, NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board and Chief Executive Lead, West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership
  • Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt, Chair, NHS Norfolk and Waveney and Deputy Chair, Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Partnership
  • Patricia Miller OBE, Chief Executive, NHS Dorset

At 11.45am

  • Chris Hopson, Chief Strategy Officer, NHS England
  • Sir David Nicholson KCB OBE, Chair, Sandwell and Birmingham NHS Trust and Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust
  • Professor Sir Chris Ham, Co-Chair, NHS Assembly and author “Governing the health and care system in England: creating the conditions for success”
  • Cllr David Fothergill, Chair, Community Wellbeing Board, Local Government Association

In the first panel, MPs are expected to consider the ability of ICSs to pursue and deliver on local priorities, such as prevention agenda programmes on well-being to help tackle ill-health.

The health experts are also likely to address the question of how ICSs can operate with autonomy while meeting central targets set by the NHS.

This will be the first public evidence session with the newly elected Committee Chair Steve Brine.
