The Health and Care Bill will establish statutory integrated care boards (ICBs), which will take on the commissioning functions of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) as well as some of NHS England’s commissioning functions. CCGs will be abolished by the Health and Care Bill. NHS England will continue to discharge those functions that can be most effectively exercised at a national level to ensure the system works both locally and nationally. The Bill will not change the statutory health-related functions or social care responsibilities of local authorities.
