Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 each upper tier local authority is required to have a Health and Wellbeing Board. The board aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Redbridge. It is a partnership board, bringing together a range of public services including adult social services, GP's, public health, children’s services, housing and community safety organisations.

The work of the board

The board is required under the Health and Social Care Act to oversee and produce the following key documents. These are:

  • Health and Wellbeing Strategy (PDF 4.97mb) - identifies the key priorities for improving the health and wellbeing of people living in the borough for the next three years. Click here to view  
  • Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) - a process that identifies current and future health and wellbeing needs in light of existing services, and informs future service planning taking into account evidence of effectiveness. It identifies the bigger picture in terms of the health and wellbeing needs and inequalities of the local population.
  • Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) (PDF 3mb) - an assessment of the needs in a particular area for pharmaceutical services provided as part of the National Health Service.

These identify what services are needed to help improve people’s health and set the local framework for the commissioning of healthcare, social care, public health services and other council services.

Board meetings

The Health and Wellbeing Board currently meets five times a year.

Integrated working

Social care and health partners across Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and Havering are working together to improve health and social care services for local people. The 'Integrated Care in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge - Case for Change' document available in the related pages and documents section describes why health, social care and public health services need to work more closely together to support the most vulnerable members of our community in their own homes and ensure they lead purposeful lives - rather than simply having their illnesses treated in an acute hospital.
