Health and Wellbeing Board Briefings (NHS Confederation)

Summary

Two briefings for members of health and wellbeing boards (HWBs) have been produced by the NHS Confederation, in collaboration with the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, the Department of Health and the Local Government Association. They aim to help (a) GP commissioners and (b) councillors and officers in local authorities to understand each others’ roles in the context of the structural and cultural differences between the NHS and local government.
