Joint Health Board

The Black Country and West Birmingham Joint Health Commissioning Board (JHCB), is established in accordance with the constitution for the four CCGs: Dudley, Sandwell and West Birmingham, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

The purpose of the JHCB is, on behalf of the four CCG’s, to have overarching responsibility for all matters relating to the commissioning of healthcare services across the Black Country and West Birmingham footprint. Some of these matters include:

  • Developing common Black Country and West Birmingham wide strategic commissioning plans and monitoring the implementation of them within each CCG area.
  • Providing assurance to the CCGs’ Governing Bodies on delivery against system-based objectives.
  • Receiving assurances via its established sub-committees regarding placed based delivery where this is specific to local places.
  • Ensuring the four CCGs are working collaboratively in exercising their functions for the improvement of the services they commission.

The Joint Health Commissioning Board will meet on a bi-monthly basis and these meetings will be held in public. Due to the current pandemic meetings will be held virtually and a live stream of these meetings will be available below just before the meeting is due to start.

Joint Health Commissioning Board is committed to openness and transparency and conducts as much of its business as possible in a session that members of the public are welcome to attend and observe, subject to available space. The current pandemic has meant that our meetings are held virtually so we will be live streaming the meeting. The link to the meeting will be available on the day of the meeting.

The Board meeting, although held in public, is not a public meeting and as such, there is no opportunity for the public to ask questions.

Whilst there is no opportunity for questions to be raised in the meeting itself, members of the public are welcome to submit any questions they may have to walsallccg.ccgcomms@nhs.net and a written response will be provided.

 The Board also holds meetings in closed session where confidential items of business are discussed.
