Welcome to Humber and North Yorkshire!

(added April 2022)

Our ICS footprint, previously known as Humber Coast & Vale (HCV) has changed it’s name to Humber and North Yorkshire. See the information below from the ICS team regarding this change.

Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership

As we grow closer to the proposed date for Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to be put on a statutory footing (subject to the passing of the Health and Care Bill), you may be aware that we have recently given consideration to our ICS identity. From 1 April 2022 the existing Humber, Coast and Vale name has been replaced with Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership. There is also a new website: https://humberandnorthyorkshire.org.uk
