Health and Wellbeing

Its election time and in the national debate Health and Social Care feature right at the top, only pipped by the economy and immigration. What many people don’t know is that Health and Social Care is an almost entirely devolved issue when it comes to delivery with local NHS bodies and local councils holding most of the responsibility. In Staffordshire these bodies sit together at regular meetings of the Staffordshire Health and Wellbeing Board to provide oversight of services in the county. A similar Board meets in Stoke-on-Trent.
