Health and Wellbeing Board

The Health and Wellbeing Board brings together key leaders from the health and social care to improve the health and wellbeing of local people. The Board helps to give communities a greater say in understanding and addressing their local health and social care needs.

About the Health and Wellbeing Board

The Richmond Health and Wellbeing Board is a partnership between Richmond Council, local GPs, Clinical Commissioning Group and Voluntary Sector. Closer working between Richmond Council and local health professionals presents a great opportunity to improve the lives of our residents and promote a healthier borough.

The board was set up as part of the Government's 2012 reorganisation of the health service. It brings together the Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to agree shared priorities for improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Richmond.
