About the Health and Wellbeing Board

Health and Wellbeing Boards were established through the Health and Social Care Act 2012. They were set up to bring together key partners across the NHS, public health, adult social care and children’s services, including elected representatives and Local Healthwatch to lead the agenda for health and wellbeing within an area. 

The board has a duty to assess the needs of the area through a joint strategic needs assessment and from that develop a clear strategy for addressing those needs - a joint health and wellbeing strategy. The board met in shadow form before taking on its formal status from April 2013.

Councillor Johnny McMahon and Doctor Alison Bradley are co-chairs of the Staffordshire Health and Wellbeing Board, and representatives from Staffordshire County Council, the clinical commissioning group and the NHS attend each meeting. Additional representatives from the district and borough councils, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue and Together We're Better strategic transformation partnership are also invited to attend the board.
