OUR GOALS

Poverty

The Dudley Health and Wellbeing Board was set up in April 2012 and its primary role is to provide leadership for Dudley's health and care system. Using local evidence, it works to identify the needs of local residents, improve efficiency and secure better care to improve health and wellbeing and tackle health inequalities across the borough. 


The board encourages effective democratic, patient and carer input into the commissioning of services. It is the forum through which those who commission services to improve the health and wellbeing of Dudley residents are held to account.
