The Reading Health and Wellbeing Board is committed to improving health and wellbeing of the population across the district.
The Health and Social Care Act 2012 established Health and Wellbeing Boards as a forum where key leaders from the health and care system work together to improve the health and wellbeing of their local population and reduce health inequalities.
The Reading Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) aims to improve health and well-being for people in Reading. It is a partnership board that brings together the Council, NHS and the local Healthwatch organisation.
It is committed to improving health and wellbeing of the population across Reading, through the development of improved and integrated health and social care services. This includes overseeing the preparation of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) with the relevant Clinical Commissioning Groups and approving the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The Board has representatives from Reading Borough Council, South Reading CCG, North and West Reading CCG, Healthwatch and the Voluntary Sector.
Health and Wellbeing Board meetings are open to the public. The meetings usually take place at the Council Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU.
