Summary

The structural reforms of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 are implemented on April 1 bringing huge changes for the NHS and local authorities. This special briefing considers:

the state of progress in major elements of reform such as clinical commissioning groups, health and wellbeing boards and public health

issues to look out for in the coming months such as competition, conflict of interest, reconfiguration, and sector-led improvement

comment on the key challenges ahead

This briefing will be of use to all local authorities and particularly to members and officers with an interest in health and wellbeing, public health, adult and children’s social care, social care commissioning and corporate policy. It should, however, also be relevant to a wider group of members and officers such as those working in housing and planning with links to public health and health and wellbeing boards. The briefing will be useful to partners in health and the voluntary sector, such as members of local Healthwatch and CCGs.
