Health and Wellbeing Board

Bedford Borough Health and Wellbeing Board was set up in 2011.  It has a statutory responsibility 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 when moving between  health and social care. The Health and Wellbeing Board is  also responsible for leading locally on reducing health inequalities.

 

Better Care Plan

The Health and Wellbeing Board is currently considering the updated Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Bedford Borough Council Better Care Plan.  The full document is available on the panel to the right.  If you have any comments on the Plan as a stakeholder or member of the public, please email the Health and Wellbeing Board here

The Plan was signed off by the Board on 15th September 2014 for submission to NHS England and the Local Government Association.

 

Duties of the Bedford Borough Health and Wellbeing Board

 

Bedford Borough Health and Wellbeing Board has three main statutory duties:

 

  • to assess the needs of their local population through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
  • to set out how these needs will be addressed through a joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy that will offer a strategic framework in which Bedford Borough Council, Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and NHS England can make their own commissioning decisions
  • to promote greater integration and partnership, including joint commissioning, integrated provision and pooled budgets.
