The Boards have been set up to help improve the lives of local people by making it easier for health, adults and children’s social care and wellbeing services to plan and buy better services together.
The Health and Wellbeing Boards have set out how they hope to do this in a Health and Wellbeing Strategy. It explains how healthcare, health improvement and social care services will be changed to improve everyone’s health and wellbeing.
