What is the Wokingham Borough Wellbeing Board?
The Wokingham Borough Wellbeing Board is a formal committee of the local authority, charged with promoting greater integration and partnership between bodies from the NHS, Public Health and local government.
The board is responsible for identifying the current and future social care and health needs of the local area, in partnership with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), through a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and setting strategies which influence decisions taken in the council and health services.
