Chairman's blog

Suffolk Health and Wellbeing Board was established under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 with the aim of improving health and decreasing inequalities through our Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The main purpose of the Board is to ensure that Suffolk residents live long, fulfilling and healthy lives and to see a narrowing of the health inequalities between our affluent and poorer areas.

The Board comprises 23 members, including officers and elected members from the county and district/borough councils, local clinical commissioning groups, NHS England, HealthWatch Suffolk, the police and voluntary sector.
