Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, local authorities are required to have in place and service a Health and Wellbeing Board.
The North Lincolnshire Health and Wellbeing Board has a number of delegated powers. These include the following:
- To prepare a joint strategic needs assessment
- To prepare a joint health and wellbeing strategy
- To respond to consultations from clinical commissioning groups on their draft commissioning plans and amendments to those plans
- To respond to consultations from clinical commissioning groups on their annual report
- To respond to consultations from the National Health Service Commissioning Board in a performance assessment in relation to a clinical commissioning group
- To assess and publish a pharmaceutical needs assessment for North Lincolnshire
Health and Wellbeing Boards have a duty to encourage integrated commissioning between health, social care and public health by bringing together representatives of these sectors. Healthwatch North Lincolnshire has a place by law on the Board.
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is a process through which North Lincolnshire Council services (both the People and Places directorates) work together with health services (North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group) to assess the health and social needs of the North Lincolnshire population and determine priorities for commissioning services
