Health & Wellbeing Boards

 0What is the Health and Wellbeing Board?

Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, local authorities are required to have in place and service a Health and Wellbeing Board.

Health and Wellbeing Boards have a duty to encourage integrated commissioning between health, social care and public health by bringing together representatives of these sectors. The Board is tasked with: leading on the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment; developing a new Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy to inform local commissioning plans; developing agreements to pool budgets. The Board must work closely with the Clinical Commisioning Group (CCG) and oversee and monitor its work.

. The Health and Wellbeing Board will became fully operational, with all necessary powers, from April 2013, following the abolition of the Primary Care Trusts (PCTs).

The Health and Wellbeing Board will be accountable to the Health, Care and Wellbeing Overview and Scrutiny Sub-Committee.
