Integration Joint Board (IJB)

The Integration Joint Board became legally responsible for the effective delivery of a large range of services within health and social care in April 2016. The membership of the IJB is largely prescribed by the Scottish Government in terms of numbers and the organisations that they represent. The members of the IJB are outlined below.
