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.
