“It’s an honour to join the ICB and I look forward to using my experience and knowledge to contribute to the Board’s ambition to improve health and care services for the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. From my pharmacy roles, I have personal experience of the challenges facing our system and how important it is that we deliver integrated and personalised health and care services.”
While the ICB welcomes Nick, they say goodbye and thank you to their outgoing independent non-executive board member, Carole Theobald, who has provided her dedicated service and commitment since the launch of the ICB in July 2022.

It has been a privilege to be part of the launch and first year of the Integrated Care Board. I have seen first-hand just how committed health and care organisations are in working together to make sure the voices and needs of patients and communities are central to ICB discussions and decisions so that services are inclusive and accessible to the whole population and provide the best possible health outcomes for one and all.”
