A national survey was carried out in autumn 2014, using Bristol Online Surveys , to collect the views of selected core members of Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) across England. Invitations to complete the survey were sent to 610 members of HWBs. Overall, after repeated follow-ups, there were 47 responses received between 30th September 2014 and 1st December 2014 (a 7.7% response rate). Of the 47 respondents, 28 (58%) were senior public health professionals, eight (14%) were councillors or executive/cabinet members and six (13%) were senior CCG professionals. Given the low response rate, the results of this survey do not allow for generalisation.


The research was funded by the NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR).
