Influencing Local Commissioning for Health and Care - Guidance for the Voluntary and Community Sector

The Health and Social Care Act 2012i (“the Act”) makes changes to how local health and social care planning and commissioning will happen.

It introduces a new local decision-making forum - the health and wellbeing board and gives it duties and powers in relation to Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs). This paper examines how voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) can work with and influence joint local commissioning in the new system.
