How the voluntary sector and health and wellbeing boards work together
Both North Yorkshire and York have their own Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWB). Each HWB has representatives from local authorities, NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and partners including the voluntary sector. The voluntary sector representative for the North Yorkshire Health & Wellbeing Board is Jill Quinn, Chief Executive from Dementia Forward.
Each Health and Wellbeing Board works to develop robust joint health and wellbeing strategies and sets the framework for commissioning health care, social care and public health services.
