Health and Wellbeing Forums

Following the creation of Integrated Care Systems from 1 July 2020, one of the key areas of focus for the West Northamptonshire Health and Wellbeing Board is to support delivery of ‘PLACE’.

PLACE is a term used for a geographical area that sits under a local Integrated Care System where planning and service delivery of health, care and wellbeing services will take place.

In Northamptonshire, the national guidance has been implemented by proposing that the local Integrated Care System comprises of the following structure:

  • System – NHS Northamptonshire Integrated Care Board and Northamptonshire Integrated Care Partnership
  • PLACE - West Northamptonshire and North Northamptonshire Health and Wellbeing Boards
  • Community - Health and Wellbeing Forums
  • Neighbourhood - Local Area Partnerships

Health and Wellbeing Forums

In West Northamptonshire there will be 2 Health and Wellbeing Forums:

  • Northampton
  • Daventry and South Northants

These Forums will:

  • play a pivotal role in informing and shaping the strategic priorities on behalf of the Local Area Partnerships
  • support delivery of the Northamptonshire Integrated Care Partnership Strategy and Local Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy outcomes through the Local Area Partnerships

Membership of the Forums will be from statutory organisations, voluntary and community representatives, elected members and education.
