Health and Wellbeing Board

Health and Wellbeing Board is a forum where key leaders from the health and care system work together to improve the health and wellbeing of their local population and reduce health inequalities.

The Board helps to give communities a greater say in understanding and addressing their local health and social care needs.


The aims of the Health and Wellbeing Board are to:

  • lead the development of the local authority’s role in integrating the commissioning of health, social care and other services.
  • lead the development of local partnerships for health and social care which share a common view about local need, priorities and service development.
  • ensure the engagement and involvement of local people in the development of the health and social care system locally.
  • work with regional and pan London bodies to ensure that the health and social care needs of local people are understood and taken account of in the commissioning of services at regional and pan London level.

South West London Health and Care Partnership

Health and care organisations in Richmond are working more closely together to make services better connected and more joined up.

The NHS, Council, voluntary sector and Healthwatch have come together to look at what’s important for health and care in Richmond, what the challenges are and how if different organisations work more closely together we can make a difference.

Together, partners are working on a local Health and Care Plan.
