Answer for Mayor of London Health Powers

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want the London Health Board to have enhanced political oversight of three main areas:  firstly the Better Health for London 10 ambitions for London's health and care that were identified by Lord Darzi's London Health Commission and the NHS Five Year Forward View.  Secondly the Board will oversee health and care devolution in London. Thirdly I want the board to oversee work to address health inequalities across the city.
