Health and Wellbeing Board

New Regulations allow Committees to meet in virtual form online. Following Council approval on 19th May 2020 the Council’s five Strategic Committees responsible for major policy and service decisions will be temporarily streamlined into one Response and Recovery Committee. This will meet on a monthly basis and will be empowered to deal with all urgent business which would normally be considered by the other Strategic Committees, if it cannot wait until the resumption of normal conditions.

Regulatory Committees and Neighbourhood Committees will continue to take place virtually. These will remain in place until at least 12th October when the Council will meet to decide whether circumstances allow for the resumption of normal business.

The Council is committed to maintaining full transparency in the decision making process during this period.

See here for all decisions taken under special urgency powers and other officer decisions during the COVID-19 emergency.

Information about Health and Wellbeing Board

The Health and Social Care Act gives Health and Wellbeing Boards statutory duties to encourage integrated working and to exercise the functions of a local authority and its partner clinical commissioning groups. In addition the Act permits a local authority to arrange for a Health and Wellbeing Board to exercise any functions that are exercisable by the authority.


The Health and Wellbeing Board will work collectively to ensure that people in Kingston experience services of the highest quality and that promote their good health and wellbeing.  It will maintain a focus on outcomes across the wide range of areas that impact on health and wellbeing.  Through its strategic oversight role it will promote integrated working and strategy development to improve health and wellbeing and narrow the gaps in health inequalities.
