The Health and Care Partnership

The Milton Keynes Health and Care Partnership is responsible for meeting the statutory duties for Health and Wellbeing Boards (as set in the Health and Social Care Act 2012).   

The Partnership is a key element of the new health and social care system. It brings together the NHS, public health, adult social care and children’s services, and other partners to plan how to best meet the needs of their local population and tackle local inequalities in health. It is also accountable to the BLMK Integrated Care Board (ICB) for any functions delegated to Milton Keynes – to oversee and drive progress in relation to local priorities.

Health and Wellbeing Strategy

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 gives health and wellbeing boards specific functions which include the preparation of Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs). These are duties of local authorities and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs). 

The current Health and Wellbeing strategy can be found here

The priorities in our Health and Wellbeing strategy have been shaped by the views and experiences of our residents, partners and stakeholders. They are based on a detailed analysis of the evidence – which we call our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).
