Dr McGilligan said he was “very proud” to be named a HWB champion.
 
“Being given the title of a DH champion for HWB is a great recognition of the work that has been done in this area in Surrey,” he said.
 
“HWBs will be where the real changes are in the NHS.”
 
The DH HWB champions initiative is part of the ongoing work at the National Learning Network for Health and Wellbeing Boards.
 
The network of champions will be expected to promote partnership working between CCGs and local government.  
 
A spokesperson from the DH said this work is “very much in development”.
