Health and Wellbeing Board

Come along to the Health & Wellbeing Board’s Informal Session on Thurs 20 April. It will focus on ‘The Health of Children & Young People in Lambeth.’

You will be able to hear about priorities for Public Health in Lambeth in the run up to the publication of the Council’s Annual Public Health Report.

The report

This year’s report focuses on children and young people, and has two parts.

  • health issues now and in the short term.
  • how children and young people’s health might look ten years from now.

Discuss key questions

As well as hearing from local experts, you will be able to share your views and hear from other Lambeth residents through group discussions on key questions:

  • Is children and young people’s health improving?
  • What are the challenges that different groups of children and young people face?
  • Do our future scenarios for children and young people’s health capture your concerns?
  • What can we do today to improve the health of children and young people growing up in Lambeth ten years from now?

What is the Health and Wellbeing Board?

Lambeth’s Health and Wellbeing Board aims to build strong and effective partnerships, which improve the commissioning and delivery of services across the NHS and local government, leading to improved health and wellbeing for local people.

Part of its role is to establish a shared understanding of health and wellbeing outcomes for Lambeth’s population, and set the strategic direction for action to improve and protect health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities.

HWB meeting details

The Board meets four times a year.

From 5pm-6pm, there is the informal session. The informal sessions are an opportunity for partners and members of the public to take part in a discussion about a specific topic relating to the Board’s work. This is an opportunity to talk with members of the Board and with others, and help update Lambeth’s HWB strategy. There is no need to book; you can simply turn up. Tea and coffee will be available. This is followed by a Formal Board Meeting (6 pm – 8pm) which you are welcome to attend.
