Since April 2013, each local authority in England has a fully operational health and wellbeing board.
The aim of health and wellbeing boards is to improve integrated working between local health care, social care, public health and other public service practitioners so that patients and service users experience more joined-up care, particularly in the transition between health and social care. The boards are also responsible for leading locally on reducing health inequalities.
Two main duties of health and wellbing boards are to produce the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and the Health and Wellbing Strategy for the district.
