Health and wellbeing board
The Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster health and wellbeing boards are made up of partners from the CCG, adult social services, children's services, public health and Healthwatch. There are also people on the boards who represent patients and carers, the community and voluntary sector and our local faith groups.
The health and wellbeing board members work together to improve the health and wellbeing of our population.
The health and wellbeing boards were established as part of the government's changes to the health and social care system, as outlined in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. It became a statutory committee of the local boroughs on 1 April 2013.
This partnership will drive innovation around the chosen priority areas of the joint health and wellbeing strategy, identify opportunities for collaboration and integration across agencies, and develop direct links to service users and patients.
The boards have a duty to produce a joint health and wellbeing strategy, which contains priorities for action.
