18/10/2021 - Consultation on the Results of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Developing and publishing a local Joint Health and Wellbeing strategy (JHWS) is a statutory duty of the Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) a formal committee of local partners.

The JHWS is a mechanism through which the HWB delivers its key role in improving the health and wellbeing of the local population.

Health and wellbeing boards must involve the local Healthwatch organisation and the local community, and this should be continuous throughout the JHWS process.

The JHWS demonstrates how the local council and the NHS deliver their statutory duty in improving the health and wellbeing of the local population and reducing health inequalities.

This is not about taking action on everything at once, but about setting a small number of key strategic priorities for action, that will make a real impact on people’s lives
