Health and Wellbeing Boards are a key element of the
Health and Social Care Act 2012 and are the means by which
local authorities will deliver their new duties and improve joined
Bedford Borough's Health and
Wellbeing Board brings together those who buy services across NHS,
public health, social care and children's services, plus elected
councillors and service user representatives, all these parties are deemed key stakeholders
and are tasked to jointly consider local needs and plan
the right services for our population.
This is a new and collaborative approach to deliver the
priorities outlined within the Health and
Wellbeing Strategy .
Everyone in the Borough has an equal right to good health.
By working together more effectively we will be able to support all
of our residents to lead healthy lives by providing the support and
opportunities which they need to do this.
