The information relates to staff and teams the ICB employs or has a direct responsibility for. Staff drawn from right across the partners in our ICB and ICS lead and contribute to its work and mission: To provide the best possible health outcomes for south east Londoners.
The 42 ICBs in England differ in their size and structure, ranging in population coverage from between circa 500k to circa 3m. NHS South East London ICB is a larger ICB with circa 2m population.
ICBs also differ in their coterminousity with local government, with some ICB footprints relating to one authority and others relating to many. In south east London the ICB relates to six local authorities as critical partners that drive the shape of our structures and teams in many respects. Many of our team members are jointly employed with local authorities and work in support of our borough based Local Care Partnerships, which bring health and care organisations together to plan and deliver local community-based services for their population.
ICBs also offer radically different provider portfolios with south east London providing local services to the entirety of our population and many services to ICBs that border us, as well as some of the most specialised services across the south of England and wider. Many of our staff are employed by the ICB but work with provider collaboratives and in support of service delivery and improvement across our system.
Finally, upon their establishment on 1 July 2022, ICBs were required to retain or ‘lift and shift’ the staffing structures (below executive director level) of their predecessor organisations – Clinical Commissioning Groups or CCGs. This introduces further difference given the different nature of those previous arrangements in England.
Before its dissolution, NHS South East London CCG shared the same geographical footprint as the ICB now and it was part of the South East London Integrated Care System (ICS) upon its establishment in 2020. As such large parts of the ICB’s inherited structure were designed with the future in mind.
The organogram provided here is accurate as of 6 January 2023. It will change, both for reasons of changing business needs over time and as the new ICB looks at the structure of resources, capacity and capability it will need in future.
NHS South East London ICB is directly responsible for a recurrent NHS budget of £3.9bn and the combined annual resource allocation of the NHS partnership that makes up the ICB is £7.2bn. Our responsibilities of our teams and their shape is summarised below.
