Welcome to the Health and Social Care Board

The role of the Health and Social Care Board

The Health and Social Care Board, established by Minister Michael McGimpsey MLA on 1 April 2009, faces a diverse and challenging role as it seeks to develop health and social care services across Northern Ireland. The role of the Health and Social Care Board is broadly contained in three functions:

  • To arrange or ‘commission’ a comprehensive range of modern and effective health and social services for the 1.7 million people who live in Northern Ireland;
  • To work with the health and social care trusts that directly provide services to people to ensure that these meet their needs;
  • To deploy and manage its annual funding from the Northern Ireland Executive – currently £4 billion – to ensure that all services are safe and sustainable.
