Local Healthwatch, health and wellbeing boards and health scrutiny - Roles, relationships and adding value

This guide aims to help local leaders and others to understand the independent, but complementary, roles and responsibilites of council health scrutiny, local Healthwatch and health and wellbeing boards.

This guide does not aim to cover every eventuality; it is a 'snapshot' that can be a basis for discussions about how existing and new bodies will work together and how they can build on local agreements and legislative requirements.
