In terms of the HWBs listed in the current South East Coast, South Central and South West, do you have current details about the ones names and are all the upper tier local authorities covered in your entries?

Viewing lists by map is quite cumbersome.. Is it possible to have a simple list of contact details?

Hi Matthew

If you select the link underneath the map - 'view the directory in a larger map' - you can see a list of the health and wellbeing boards and their contact details on our Google maps page.

Thanks

Hello Christopher,

All upper-tier and unitary local authorities in England are statutorily required to have HWBs set up. In other words, all local authorities at county level (i.e. upper-tier authorities) and local authorities which combine upper- and lower-tier levels (i.e. unitary authorities such as the London boroughs) will have a HWB. It is only the lower-tier local authorities (such as metropolitan district councils) which aren't required to set up a HWB. For more on this, please have a look at these links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_and_wellbeing_boards
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_government_in_England

As far as we are aware, there is not a comprehensive list and the best way to put one together would be to double-check a list of lower-tier local authorities against our map (as some lower-tier local authorities have established HWBs).

Hope you find this useful! If you have any further enquiries, please email library@kingsfund.org.uk.

In the South East section, there seems to be a mix of upper and lower tier HWBs shown. For example, the Dover HWB describes itself as a sub committee of the main Kent HWB. And Surrey Heath appears as the main HWB for Surrey, but it is in fact a district and not a unitary authority. As the lower tier HWBs are voluntary, not statutory, and therefore not subject to the same duties or responsibilities, would it be helpful to distinguish these in the directory? Also, some unitaries are currently missing e.g. Milton Keynes and Medway.
A useful resource, so many thanks for producing and updating it.

Can you make this data available in a single downloadable data file (you must have it at the back end). I could write a scrapper to pull it from your site, but this seems like makework

Any reasonable format would do

Thanks

Hello Phil,

Thanks for getting in touch. We don't hold a list of this information - all the information is on the map itself, where it is available. If you click on the enlarged version of the map and then choose the print option, it should generate a list of the data behind the map.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Hi Hong-Anh

Many thanks for your help in navigating the map details in a broader way. Really appreciated.

The work we're highlighting is Improving Adult Rehabilitation Services #improvingadultrehab and the involvement of HWBs is absolutely central to going forward.

Kind regards

Hi, I know you said this list isn't fully populated but I thought I'd let you know that Nottingham City doesn't appear to be listed and I think that's probably a large one - this is useful though.
