We want our communication, engagement and involvement principles to be woven into the fabric of our evolving ICS. It needs to be a golden thread in all of our corporate governance structures, systems, processes and procedures, and connected to the ICB Constitution.

As such, we have started to take steps to achieve this, by having health and wellbeing boards alongside our community champions, scrutiny committees and VCSE partnership.

Locally, there are two health and wellbeing boards (one for each local authority), and system partners are represented on both. They have an important role to play, given their responsibility for producing the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

Stoke-on-Trent Health and Wellbeing Board
The health and wellbeing board is a statutory partnership which brings together senior leaders from Stoke-on-Trent City Council, NHS commissioners and health service providers, Healthwatch, voluntary sector organisations, education providers and emergency services.

Staffordshire Health and Wellbeing Board
Representatives from Staffordshire County Council and the NHS attend each meeting. Additional representatives from the district and borough councils, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue and Together We’re Better strategic transformation partnership are also invited to attend the board.
