Proposed Changes to the Constitution relating to the Health and Wellbeing Board pdf icon PDF 91 KB

The purpose of this report is for the Health and Wellbeing Board to consider the finalised proposals.


This report contains proposed changes to the Council’s Constitution relating to Health and Wellbeing Board matters. The proposals have been developed in consultation with the Health and Wellbeing Board as part of an LGA supported review of the Board.


Additional documents:


The Health & Wellbeing Board considered a report containing proposed changes to the Council’s Constitution relating to the Board.


The report was introduced by Jack Bedeman, Public Health Consultant, who summarised the key changes, development process and rationale for the proposed amendments. It was highlighted that:

·       The Local Government Association supported the review of the Board, and it agreed that it would be sensible to review the relevant parts of the Constitution, specifically the terms of reference. Also, the Council’s legal team supported the review.

·       The Constitution’s review involved reviewing the terms of reference against the relevant legal acts to ensure that they correctly reflect the purpose of those acts. For instance, the Health and Social Care Act was amended in 2020, and considerable changes were made to the Integrated Care Boards.

·       The main substantive changes were to update the Board's membership. The proposed changes also clarify the role of the Executive Team of the Board.

·       Amendments were proposed to reflect the partnership character of the Board. For instance, the quorum accounts for statutory officers.

The Chair and other Board members welcomed the report and the proposed changes to the Council’s Constitution.



To consider and note the proposed changes to the Council’s Constitution regarding the Health & Wellbeing Board.
