Children's Commissioning

The Children's Integrated Commissioning Hub (ICH) provides co-ordination and a single point of accountability for children and young people's health and wellbeing related commissioning. It works to align and pool commissioning resources on behalf of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board, Public Health and NHS England.
