Health and Wellbeing Board
The Health and Social Care Act 2012 required local authorities to create a new Health and Wellbeing Board. This board replaces the former resource under the leadership of Local Strategic Partnership (LSP).
Made up of leaders from the local health and care system as well as the community and voluntary service, the board is tasked with producing a strategy for Ealing aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of our local population and reducing health inequalities. Priorities for the strategy are based on the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). The JSNA uses intelligence and health data to identify gaps in service and health inequalities between communities.
Work towards the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and JSNA is done through partnership, including members of the LSP. Wherever possible, the two boards work together to add capacity to strategies and service delivery addressing the needs of local people.
Partnership boards addressing specific communities, or areas of service are still linked to the Health and Wellbeing Board, this includes:
Ealing Executive Group (EEG)
The Ealing Executive Group is the executive arm of the Health and Wellbeing Board. It is responsible for supplying executive advice and support, and ensuring that the board’s strategic priorities are translated into action within the partner organisations.
Health and Well-Being Operational Delivery Partnership Boards (3rd tier)
The Health and Wellbeing Board is supported by '3rd tier' networks made up of partners who are involved in the direct delivery of services to local residents. At present the Health and Well-Being Board has nine Operational Delivery Partnership Boards.
