Local Health Boards (Wales) are bodies corporate established by the Welsh Ministers under s.11 of the National Health Service (Wales) Act 2006.
A Local Health Board (Wales) will be responsible for:
- The provision of health care services within their areas;
- The planning and provision of specialised and tertiary services that were commissioned by Health Commission Wales up to 30 September 2009. The planning of some of those specialised and tertiary services may be executed via joint committees such as that envisaged for the Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC).
This model will ensure the emphasis remains on co-operation and engagement with local partners, particularly in relation to the Health, Social Care and Well-being Strategies and Children and Young People’s Plans.
