About the Board
Health and wellbeing is defined by the World Health Organisation as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Health and wellbeing includes all health services, adult social care, children’s services, and wider services such as community safety, education, employment, leisure and housing.
Health and Wellbeing is diverse and covers many factors. The government has legislated (Health and Social Care Act 2012) that all local authorities must form a strategic partnership board called a health and wellbeing board.
On the Island, the Health and Wellbeing Board is attended by representatives from the following:
- Isle of Wight Council.
- Isle of Wight NHS Trust.
- Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
- National Health Commissioning Board (Wessex Local Area Team)
- Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary.
