Health and Social Care
LGYH have been working with partners fron Health on the transition to new arrangements involving Health and Social Care, which means that Local Authorities will be more involved.
Part of this work includes developing Health and Wellbeing Boards. Health and Wellbeing Boards will be a forum for local commissioners across the NHS, local government, public health and social care, elected representatives, and representatives of HealthWatch to discuss how to work together to better the health and wellbeing outcomes of the people in their area.
More information on the development of Health and Wellbeing Boards in Yorkshire and Humber can be found on the attachment below.
