About us

The Lancashire Health and Wellbeing Board is a forum for key leaders from the health and care system in Lancashire to work together to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population and reduce health inequalities.

Board members work together to understand their local community’s needs, agree priorities and encourage commissioners to work in a more joined up way. As a result, patients and the public should experience more joined-up services from the NHS and their local council in the future.

It is the responsibility of the Health and Wellbeing Board to:
  • To identify the priority health and wellbeing needs in our area (using the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment)
  • To set priorities based on information gathered from across Lancashire
  • To promote integrated commissioning and provision of services by encouraging partnership working
