Committee Details

Sheffield Health and Wellbeing Board

Purpose of committee


Sheffield’s Health and Wellbeing Board is a group of local GPs, local councillors, a representative of Sheffield citizens, and senior managers in the NHS and the local authority, all of whom seek to make local government and local health services better for local people and to deliver a single approach to improving the health and wellbeing of Sheffield residents.


The Board has a formal public meeting, normally four times per year, interspersed with engagement events and strategy development meetings.


Attending Meetings/Public Questions


There is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions of the Board under the agenda item ‘Public Questions’.


The arrangements for dealing with questions and petitions at meetings of the Board are as follows:-


  • If you wish to ask a question or present a petition at the meeting, you must submit the question/petition in writing at least 2 clear days in advance of the date of the meeting, by email to the following address:  For meetings held on a Thursday, questions/petitions will need to be received by 9.00 a.m. on the Tuesday of that week.


  • The Chair of the meeting has discretion as to how questions and petitions are presented at the meeting and as to whether you are invited to ask your question, or whether they are read out at the meeting. A response to the question or petition will be given by the appropriate Board Member.  If you are not able to attend the meeting, your question/petition may be referred to the appropriate Board Member, and an answer/response will be provided to you.


  • Where a submitted question or petition cannot be answered if time does not allow, or where a Board Member undertakes to provide a written answer/response, the written answer/response will be provided to you and will be published on the Council’s website.


Please note that the Chair of the meeting may not accept petitions or questions which relate to:-


(i) matters not being within the responsibility of the Local Authority or which affects the City or its inhabitants;

(ii) judicial or quasi-judicial matters;

(iii) individual planning/licence/grant applications or appeals;

(iv) named officers or Members of the Council;

(v) confidential matters of the type referred to in Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act, 1972; or

(vi) matters of an irrelevant, repetitious, defamatory, frivolous or offensive nature or a general misuse of the opportunity.


Recording is allowed at meetings of the Board under the direction of the Chair of the meeting. The protocol on audio/visual recording and photography provides further information.


**PLEASE NOTE: Meetings of Health and Wellbeing Board have to be held as physical meetings. Social distancing restrictions and other public health safety measures still apply. The Council Chamber can accommodate all Co-operative Executive Members, plus officers, and a limited number of members of the public within a safe indoor environment. However, if you would like to attend the meeting, you must register to attend by emailing  2 clear days in advance of the date of the meeting. This is necessary to facilitate the management of attendance at the meeting to maintain social distancing. In order to ensure safe access and to protect all attendees, you will be required to wear a face covering (unless you have an exemption) at all times when moving about within the venue. It is also recommended that you undertake a Covid-19 Rapid Lateral Flow Test within two days of the meeting.
