Whilst the focus of the Green Paper is on local government, there are important implications for health and well-being that also needs to be considered. Subsequently it is important to ensure that partnerships between local government and health are maintained and maximised in any new structures, as highlighted within the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care, published in January 2018, and the recent Welsh Government Plan, “A Healthier Wales: our Plan for Health and Social Care”, published on the 11th of June 2018.
