The Wandsworth Health and Wellbeing Board is a partnership between Wandsworth Council, local GPs, the Integrated Care Board (responsible for commissioning and overseeing health services) and the voluntary sector. Closer working between Wandsworth Council and local health professionals presents the opportunity to improve the lives of Wandsworth residents and promote a healthier borough. The focus of the board is to:
- Improve the population’s health and reduce health inequalities
- Help reform the way the health and care system works
- Protect the health of residents
This is a unique opportunity for someone with an understanding of health and social care issues in the borough to influence the strategic direction of our local services on behalf of the voluntary sector. Do you want to ensure the knowledge and experience of our sector is heard? Do you want to help shape inclusive, effective services which work for all?
We are looking for someone, prepared to work alongside the VSCS to ensure that the voluntary sector contribution to the Health and Wellbeing Board and the feedback from the Board is communicated effectively to the voluntary sector and to our statutory partners.
Time to start thinking – is this a role for you?
