The Health and Social Care Bill has been passed through Parliament and has now become law. It requires the County Council to establish a Health and Wellbeing Board.
We established the Health and Wellbeing Board in shadow form in 2011, and it assumed its full statutory powers and duties in April 2013.
What this board does
The Board is committed to improving health and wellbeing across East Sussex, especially for people, places and communities who currently have the worst health outcomes. It will make sure there is a shared and comprehensive understanding of local health and wellbeing needs, and a clear strategy to meet them.
It is an unusual council committee in that officers vote with councillors and other local representatives. It has statutory powers and meets in public.
These meetings are open to the public and press.
