Health & Wellbeing Board
Wirral's Health & Wellbeing Board (HWBB) provides oversight, strategic direction and coordination of the range of local partnership approaches while the partners set out to directly commission services. Also the HWBB seeks to:
Develop a shared understanding of the needs of the local community through the development of an agreed Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
Meet those needs through leading on the on going development of a Health & Wellbeing Strategy
Provide a local governance structure for local planning and accountability of health and wellbeing related outcomes
Wirral's Health and Wellbeing Board use the Wirral Plan 2026 as their collective and collaborative response to the locally identified needs.
