Integrated care systems (ICSs) are categorised from A to D, depending on their weighted population determined by factors including complexity, population health and demographics. For those ICSs in band A, NHS England and NHS Improvement can approve chief executive salaries of between £175,000 and £197,500. For band B, salaries of between £190,000 to £212,500 can be approved, with salaries of between £220,000 and £245,000 for band C and between £250,000 and £275,000 for band D. In exceptional cases, such as where an area has multiple significant health and organisational challenges, NHS England and NHS Improvement can seek ministerial approval for higher salaries. Most chief executives in ICSs are expected to be in bands A and B. The following table shows the bands for the ICSs requested.



Humber Coast and Vale
