The Health and Wellbeing Board is a group of people from different organisations in York who meet in public about 6 times every year. They work together to make improvements to the health and wellbeing of York residents.
The Health and Wellbeing Board:
- know and understand the health and wellbeing needs of residents in York by producing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) (or read the 'easy read' JSNA)
- agree the health and wellbeing priorities for the city
- work together to address these priorities
The Health and Wellbeing Board has recently launched its new 5 year Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy which outlines its vision, aims and priorities for 2017 to 2022. An easy to read version of the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy is also available.
Our 3 most recently completed needs assessments are:

Sustainability and Transformation Plan
The Humber Coast and Vale Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is the first stage in a programme of work undertaken since April 2016 by a partnership of local authorities, NHS Commissioners and providers and other community-based organisations.
STPs aim to make practical changes in the way health services are delivered for people and communities. The vision is for everyone in the Humber Coast and Vale to start well, live well and age well. To do that, everyone must be supported to better manage their own care, reduce dependence on hospitals and use our resources more efficiently so that we will all be able to have reliable access to good, safe services into the future.
Better Care Fund (BCF)
The BCF was introduced as a tool to encourage and speed up the integration of health and social care, and prompt local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups to develop transformational projects through the use of pooled budgets and integrated spending plans. Health and Wellbeing Boards are responsible for signing off BCF Plans.
