Local Healthwatch and voluntary, community sector and social enterprise (VCSE) members of Health and Wellbeing Boards are invited to take part in an online survey as part of a research project funded through the Department of Health Policy Research Programme. The project is entitled ‘Commissioning public health services: the impact of the health reforms on access, health inequalities and innovation in service provision’ and is designed to assess the impact of transferring public health responsibilities to local government from April 2013. Researchers are seeking the views of all local Healthwatch and VCSE members of Health and Wellbeing Boards in order to understand changes in how preventative services are being commissioned and provided following these reforms and how VCSE organisations are being involved. The survey closes on 3 July 2015.
