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) are met.

The Chairman, Christine Field writes a regular blog on issues relating to the Board. Should you wish to receive alerts to this and the agenda and papers for the meetings please contact Suzanne Thompson (details below).
