The Health and Wellbeing Board is committed to improving health and wellbeing across East Sussex, especially for people, places and communities who currently have the worst health outcomes. It will make sure there is a shared and comprehensive understanding of local health and wellbeing needs, and a clear strategy to meet them.
The Health and Wellbeing Board is an unusual council committee because officers vote alongside Councillors and other local representatives. It has statutory powers and meets in public.
Two voting members rotate between districts and boroughs on an annual basis (Currently Eastbourne and Hastings).
