Health and Wellbeing Board

The Health and Wellbeing Board is made up of a range of people from Westminster City Council and from health partner organisations.

The Board will work to improve the health and wellbeing of people who live in and visit Westminster. Its activities include:

  • assessing the health and wellbeing needs of the local population and producing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
  • preparing a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) which is guided by the results of the JSNA and identifies important actions to carry out over the next few years to improve people's health and wellbeing
  • working in partnerships to ensure that plans to commission services are joined up across different organisations
  • carrying out Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments to guide the provision of high quality pharmaceutical services

Health and Wellbeing Board meetings will be held regularly and will be open to public attendance.
