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 CCGs, 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 place-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.
