Medway Elects
Health and Wellbeing Board

In line with nationally agreed operating principles, the health and wellbeing board will seek to:

  1. provide collective leadership to improve health and well-being across the local authority area, enable shared decision-making and ownership of decisions in an open and transparent way;
  2. achieve democratic legitimacy and accountability, and empower local people to take part in decision-making;
  3. address health inequalities by ensuring quality, consistency and comprehensive health and local government services are commissioned and delivered in the area; and
  4. identify key priorities for health and local government commissioning and develop clear plans for how commissioners can make best use of their combined resources to improve local health and well-being outcomes in the short, medium and long term.



The Health and Wellbeing Board also includes independent members who are not councillors, but members of the community co-opted onto the committee because of their relevant skills, knowledge or experience.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
