Blackburn with Darwen’s Health and Wellbeing Board is made up of Councillors, Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) members, Council Chief Officers, Healthwatch representatives along with delegates from the voluntary and community sector. The Board became a statutory group in April 2013.
The Board has a duty to oversee and ensure the delivery of local health outcomes and drive service integration across the NHS, local government and non-NHS sectors and to ensure continued integration of all public services to achieve this.
The aims of the Board are:
- to provide local accountability for improved health and wellbeing and health equity outcomes for the communities of Blackburn with Darwen
- to promote integration and partnership working between the NHS, social care, public health and other local services
- to improve local democratic accountability
The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy informs and influences commissioning decisions across local services including those services beyond health and care to make a real impact upon the wider determinants of health.
