Informal views are being sought to help develop proposals for the technical regulations that will apply to health and wellbeing boards from April 2013. The intention with the regulations is to give as much flexibility to local areas as possible and to and to build on how shadow boards are already running. Stakeholder input will be vital for this, so that in practice, the regulations are robust yet give enough freedom to local areas to be able to shape their board in a way that fits best with their circumstances.
In particular, feedback would be particularly welcome from:
■senior leaders across local government
■officers supporting establishment of shadow boards
■CCG, NHS and patient representatives
■shadow health and wellbeing board members
If you would like comment, please do so here, by 22nd June, so that your views can be reflected in the Centre's response. Alternatively please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
