Health and Wellbeing: Implementing the Act

THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE -
Thursday 29 November 2012

Presentations from the day are available below.



The Health and Social Care Act 2012 is intended to give local authorities a much stronger role in shaping services, and responsibility for local population health improvement. New statutory Health and Wellbeing Boards will bring together local commissioners of health and social care, elected representatives and representatives of Healthwatch - a new consumer body for health, to agree an integrated way to improving local health and well-being. Reforms introduced by the Act mark a fundamental change in the way local care needs are identified and addressed.

This event brought together a range of perspectives to consider the challenges and opportunities of implementing the new policies, and the evidence needs and resources available to support decision making in this framework.
