Enhancing partnership working in Public Services Boards

Thursday 18th May 2023
With Public Health Network Cymru

Collaborating with diverse partners is essential for Public Health leads and practitioners to address the wider determinants of health. Within the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, Public Services Boards (PSB) are a key institution for partnership working in Wales. Yet studies consistently show that strategic partnerships fail to reach agreement on mutually beneficial joint action.

An extended research project with a PSB explored the potential to transform partnership relationships. In this webinar, Dr Elizabeth Woodcock gives us a window into the tensions between specialisation and dialogue, hierarchy and shared responsibility, and efficiency and inclusivity.

Members of the PSB and others joined with the researcher in action research, a participatory approach to shared learning. The findings offer proven methods for Public Health and other PSB representatives to negotiate the tensions and craft a collaborative partnership culture.

Elizabeth’s presentation is introduced by Kevin Griffiths, Head of Local Government Partnerships, Welsh Government, who explains the importance of strategic partnership working in Wales.
