The West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) is a statutory partnership providing shared strategic leadership and coordination of local action to deliver health, care and wellbeing services based on the best evidence of local needs. The West Sussex HWB includes representation from key organisations in West Sussex with major responsibilities for social care services, public health, health and wellbeing services. The HWB’s responsibilities include developing a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) which identifies priorities and sets out how local needs will be met.
The current 2015-2018 West Sussex Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy has been reviewed. The new strategy will be used to inform local commissioning and delivery plans and determine what actions West Sussex County Council, NHS, and other partners need to take to meet health and social care needs, and to address health inequalities.
The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health Chairman for the Health and Wellbeing Board is requested to agree that the West Sussex Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) 2019 – 2024 is in alignment with the West Sussex Plan and is asked to endorse the Joint Health and Wellbeing Board’s Strategy on behalf of the County Council.
