We are part of the Health and Wellbeing Boards which are run by local authorities to develop and monitor the major health and wellbeing priorities for the area. There are two health and wellbeing boards in Dorset – one run by Dorset County Council, and one run jointly between Bournemouth and Poole Councils.

These Boards are made up of representatives from a number of organisations including NHS, the voluntary sector and local authorities along with councillors and GPs. They set the direction for health and wellbeing across the area and work together to make sure that people still receive the best possible care.
