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.
