An introduction to the Health and Wellbeing Partnership Public Health Working Group
What is the Public Health Working Group?
For 2016/17 the Health and Wellbeing Partnership has one Public Health Working Group. It reports directly to the Partnership regarding funding decisions and the progress of health and wellbeing projects.
The Task & Finish Group focuses on the following public health priorities :
- Increasing physical activity and promoting a healthy weight
- Improving mental health and emotional wellbeing
- Reducing the harm caused by alcohol
When do they meet?
The Public Health Working Group meets every quarter to provide oversight and management of the funding, development and delivery of projects and campaigns.

The dates are as follows:
- Wed 28 June 2017 from 5-6:30pm
- Wed 20 September 2017 from 5-6:30pm
- Wed 13 December 2017 from 5-6:30pm
All the meetings will be in the Council offices.
Who attends the meetings?
The Health and Wellbeing Public Health Working Group is made up of relevant stakeholders including Councillors, Herts Valleys CCGs, the CVS, patient representatives and local charities and organisations.
Herts Valleys CCG is the Clinical Commissioning Group for West Hertfordshire – the boroughs of Hertsmere, Dacorum, St Albans, Three Rivers and Watford. Their role is to plan and commission high quality health services on behalf of the people who live in this area. Having them on the Public Health Working Group is valuable for the development of projects.
Conflicts of interest are always declared, and no funding decision is made when the stakeholder concerned is present.
Date of last review: 13 April 2017
