Health and wellbeing board

The Hackney health and wellbeing board is a statutory committee of the Council.

This means senior leaders from the NHS, Hackney Council, Healthwatch and the voluntary and community sector can work together to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Hackney and reduce health inequalities.

What does the health and wellbeing board do?

The health and wellbeing board aims to improve the health and wellbeing of local people and tackle health inequalities by:

  • identifying local health needs and priorities, and making sure commissioning plans reflect the findings of our analysis of local health needs, the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
  • preparing and publishing a joint health and wellbeing strategy based upon the needs identified within the City and Hackney health and wellbeing profile
  • plan the delivery of integrated local services by addressing the underlying factors of health and wellbeing
  • encouraging agencies to collaborate
  • communicating and engaging with the public and other stakeholders about how to achieve the best possible quality of life
  • assessing needs for pharmaceutical services in Hackney and publishing a pharmaceutical needs assessment
