Health and care services we commission
The ICB is responsible for planning and buying the majority of healthcare services in Suffolk and north east Essex.
Use these pages to browse the health and care services that the NHS Suffolk and North East Essex ICB commissions.
Most of these services are accessed via your GP team, who will either treat your medical condition or refer you to a hospital or other medical service. If your GP needs to refer you to a different service for a physical or mental health condition, you can usually choose which hospital or service you go to.
You may also come into the care of a hospital directly if you require urgent or emergency care. Alternatively, some services allow you to refer yourself direct, without having to see your GP team.
