Health and Wellbeing Board
Purpose of committee
The Health and Wellbeing Board brings together the organisations responsible for improving health and wellbeing and reducing health inequalities across Worcestershire. Its members include elected councillors and officers from County and district councils, representatives from Worcestershire Children First, local NHS organisations, the local voluntary and community sector, Healthwatch Worcestershire and West Mercia Police. It also has a range of sub-groups that focus on specific age groups or geographical areas such as the Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership and Health Improvement Group.
The Health and Wellbeing Board and its Health and Wellbeing Strategy set the strategic direction for many other strategies, forums and committees across the Integrated Care System, working with partners to achieve better health and wellbeing for Worcestershire.
