About Us

About the Health and Social Care Board

The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) is a statutory organisation. We arrange or ‘commission’ health and social care services for the population of Northern Ireland.

We are accountable to the Health Minister, for turning their vision for health and social care into a range of services that deliver high quality and safe outcomes for patient and service users, are good value for the taxpayer, and comply with statutory duties.

Our Board of Directors is made up of a non-executive chair, seven non-executive directors, the chief executive and four executive directors.
