Effective Health and Wellbeing Boards - findings from 10 case studies

Shared Intelligence were commissioned by the Local Government Association (LGA) to explore in detail the characteristics of an effective Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB). They did this by carrying out case study visits to ten HWBs and conducting over 60 face-to-face and telephone interviews with HWB members. Interviewees included HWB chairs and vice chairs (generally a council leader or cabinet member and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) representative), senior council officers, health service managers, Healthwatch chief executives and HWB support officers.

This report includes a pen portrait of each of the ten HWBs. They provide an understanding of what an effective HWB looks like and explore the conditions for effectiveness. The pen portraits also highlight some of the outcomes that effective HWBs have been able to secure.
