About the Partnership

About the partnership

Rotherham’s Health and Wellbeing Board is a multi-agency board of equal partners, who are working together to improve the health of local people. The role of the Health and Wellbeing Board is to support and encourage effective partnership working, share good practice, understand and build on local assets, as well as taking action where needed to remove blockages, identify gaps and hold organisations to account for delivery. All of this is about ensuring the board maximises opportunities for improving health and wellbeing in everything it does, across all agendas, policies and strategies. Under the Health and Social Care Act (2012), the Health and Wellbeing Board also has a number of statutory duties, including agreeing a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The Health and Wellbeing Board is a part of the Rotherham Together Partnership, which brings together key partnership boards in Rotherham to ensure that work is co-ordinated The Rotherham Together Partnership plan - ‘The Rotherham Plan 2025’- provides a framework for partners’ collective efforts to create a borough that is better for everyone who wants to live, work, invest or visit. The Health and Wellbeing Board plays a key role on delivering on a number of the game changers within this strategy.

The Health and Wellbeing Board also sets the strategic vision for the Integrated Care Partnership Place Board, and the Rotherham Place Plan is the delivery mechanism for the health and social care integration elements of the Health and Wellbeing strategy.
