Chaired by Cllr Hazel Simmons, the Leader of the Council, the board agreed its work programme in response to its statutory requirements. Particular responsibilities include:
Issues considered by the board include:
Better Together - a joint programme to improve the health and wellbeing of Luton’s residents of all ages by better working between organisations, sharing information and delivering seamless and personalised services
Winter Pressures – the plan to ensure that local health services are able to respond to increased demand during the winter period
Healthy Child Programme – the programme of screening, assessment and intervention 
 
The Health and Wellbeing Board will be supported by three delivery boards - membership of which includes the CCG. Theses boards are based on the three priority outcomes of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy. 
  • Children’s and Young People’s Trust Board - every child and young person has a healthy start in life
  • Health Inequalities Delivery Board - reduced health inequalities in Luton
  • Healthier and More Independent Delivery Board - healthier and more independent adults and older people
 The board also has a specific responsibility to ensure broad community engagement in the health and social care agenda. Local Healthwatch has a key role in ensuring that the views of patients and the general public, as well as those of voluntary and community sector organisations are heard by the Health and Wellbeing Board. Local Healthwatch in Luton acts as an independent local consumer champion bringing together people’s views and experiences to improve health and social care.
