A Health and Wellbeing Board for Leicestershire Cheryl Davenport Programme Director
Why are we establishing a Health and Wellbeing Board? Included in the NHS White Paper Equity and Excellence Liberating the NHS (July 2010) Health and Social Care Bill (January 2011) makes the establishment of a Health and Wellbeing Board mandatory for each upper tier authority Leicestershire is an early implementer
What will the Health and Wellbeing Board do? Primary purpose is to:- Promote integration and partnership working between the NHS, Social Care, Public Health and other local services; and Improve local democratic accountability.
How will the Board achieve its purpose? Identify needs and priorities across Leicestershires population, and ensure commissioning and delivery plans reflect the findings of our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment Prepare and publish a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy Communicate and engage with local people about how they can achieve the best possible quality of life Have oversight of public sector resources, where appropriate.
What does being an early implementer mean? Working with other early implementer councils nationally and the DH, sharing good practice and ideas Have the Shadow Board in place by April 2011 We see this as a priority so we can: –Keep the focus of our collective attention on the task of improving health and well being outcomes during transition; and –Maintain momentum on important developments already in progress
What is the difference between the Shadow and Statutory Boards? Shadow Board is an advisory body to the County Councils Cabinet, NHS LCR Trust Board and GP Commissioning Consortia Statutory Board will be in place once legislation is passed, expected to be April 2013, and will be a Committee of the County Council with executive powers
Who is on the Shadow Board? The Cabinet Lead Member for Health The Cabinet Lead Member for Adults and Communities The Cabinet Lead Member for Children and Young Peoples Services At least one representative of each of the GP Consortia within the local authority area The Director of Public Health The Director of Adults and Communities The Director of the Children and Young Peoples Services
Who is on the Shadow Board? (cont.) LINk representation - 2 places (to replace with Local Health Watch representation, when established) The Chief Executive of NHS LCR (the local Primary Care Trust)* Local Medical Committee representation – 1 place District Council representation – 2 places.** *This place could be allocated to a representative of the National Commissioning Board when this is established and their role is more defined. This is for further consideration in due course. ** Representation to be sought from Districts, after local elections in May 2011
Why are some organisations not represented? Membership essentially follows statutory membership Focus on small core group of commissioning leaders and democratic accountability Structures beneath the board will ensure engagement and influence from a wide range of other organisations, such as providers, (including voluntary and community sector), professional advisors, and other stakeholders
What are the implications of the new board for existing groups? The health and wellbeing board will be one of the new commissioning hubs in the Leicestershire Together partnership during its Shadow period In 2013 it will become a statutory committee of the Local Authority, which will mark a clear change in its position within partnership arrangements

Leicestershire Together Structure and Roles
How will stakeholders engage with the Board, once it is in place? Key platform will be the Strategy and Monitoring Groups beneath the Board which will inform commissioning decisions and support and deliver services. These groups will call upon users, providers, commissioners, professional advisors communities and other stakeholders to ensure that the Boards recommendations are well- informed and that services are successfully designed and delivered.
What is the process for establishing the Board? One of six elements of work governed by the Joint Change Programme Board operating between the PCT, LCC and GP Consortia Sub group established to co-ordinate implementation of the Health and Wellbeing Board Terms of Reference to be approved by Cabinet (April 5) and PCT Trust Board (April 14) Board will meet in public, at least quarterly

How will the Board enhance local progress to date? We are moving into a new phase of our partnerships in Leicestershire –Taking elements of joint commissioning into a more systematic approach, with clinical leadership –Using our strong foundation of partnership working –Moving from transitional arrangements to shaping the end state of the new system –Taking our collective learning to scope new opportunities (e.g. total place into community budgets)
How will the Board enhance local progress to date? (cont) The Board should improve accountability, governance, resource allocation and delivery across partners in the new commissioning system, with a focus on how we collectively deliver outcomes for local people The commissioning partnership envisaged on this Board will design a specific performance and delivery framework to assure their work, reflecting partnership changes affecting the NHS, the local authority and other partners.
