Summary of item 2.3: The Health and Social Care Act (2012) places a duty upon the Local Authority and Clinical Commissioning Groups in Cheshire East to develop a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, to meet the needs identified in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.

There is a clear expectation within the Act that the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy will provide the basis for all health and social care commissioning in the local area. This begins with the duty of the Clinical Commissioning Groups, the NHS Commissioning Board and the local authority to have due regard to the relevant Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy when carrying out their respective functions, including their commissioning functions.
