The Integrated Care Board has a number of committees which are responsible for ensuring that our functions and duties are properly managed and that decisions are made appropriately and in line with our powers.

Our Board meetings are held in public, and members of the public are invited to attend and observe if they wish.

Our governance structure is set out here. Further details can be found in our Governance Handbook.

The Board meets in formal public sessions six times a year. It is provided with accurate, timely and clear information so it can maintain full and effective control over strategic, financial, operational, compliance and governance issues.

It is the Board’s job to ensure we act effectively, efficiently, economically and in accordance with our Constitution. Our Constitution sets out all the rules, arrangements and principles we follow when commissioning healthcare services for the people of the Black Country. Our Constitution is available to read.
