Health and Wellbeing Boards are a forum for the NHS, public health and social care, elected representatives, and representatives of HealthWatch, to discuss how to work together to better the health and wellbeing of the people in their area. As a result, patients and the public should experience more joined-up services from the NHS and local councils in the future.

Across England there are 152 local Healthwatch groups, making sure that the experiences of local people are heard and taken seriously - whether it's improving services today or helping to shape them for tomorrow.
