About the Health & 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.
Cllr Alan White and Dr Alison Bradley are Co-Chairs of the Staffordshire Health & Wellbeing Board, and representatives from SCC, CCG and NHS attend each meeting. Additional representatives from the District and Boroughs, Staffordshire Police, Fire and Rescue and Together We're Better STP are also invited to attend the Board.
