Residents from Lancashire and South Cumbria have been invited to attend a forum on the region's NHS Care Board.

The Integrated Care Board (ICB) was established last July, with this being the first Annual General Meeting.

The event will take place on September 13 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at the County Hall in Preston.

This will be an opportunity for members of the public to meet and put questions to the board. 

In 2022, the Lancashire and South Cumbria ICB replaced the previous eight clinical commissioning groups in the area.

An ICB is an NHS organisation responsible for developing a plan for meeting the health needs of the population, managing the NHS budget and arranging for the provision of health services.

The initial priorities of the new board were set out in a 10-year plan, with the organisation now asking the public on their views as to their progress.
