West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board
What is this board responsible for?
The West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board
will lead on improving the co-ordination of commissioning across
NHS, social care and public health services.
The Board brings together elected members,
leaders from the NHS, social care and the voluntary sector to work
together and support one another to improve the health and
wellbeing of the local population and reduce health inequalities.
The Board also provides a forum for challenge, discussion and the
involvement of local people.
It oversees the development of the health and
social care needs assessment referred to as the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). The
JSNA identifies the health and wellbeing needs of the people of
West Sussex and the results are used to inform local commissioning
of services to create a more effective and responsive local health
and care system.
Other services that impact on health and
wellbeing such as housing and education provision will also be
addressed, whilst ensuring statutory obligations such as the
Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)
To support its work, the Board established the
Health and Wellbeing Cooperative in May
2012. This provides a forum for the involvement of a broad range of
service providers, community based organisations and other
interested parties, to influence health and wellbeing in West
