Have your say on Health and Well-being
Worcestershire's Health and
Well-being Board met in public for the first time on 30th May and
is now seeking the public's views to help shape the agenda from now
The Health and Well-being Board has
been established by Worcestershire County Council and the local
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) which are made up of GPs from
across the county. The Board brings together local leaders to
improve the health and well-being of the county's population and
will meet every two months around the county.
The board is now seeking the
public's views on the draft Joint Health and Well-being Strategy
for Worcestershire and their vision which is 'to improve health and
well-being outcomes, adding life to years as well as years to life,
especially for those communities and groups with the poorest
health.' Views are also invited on the priorities over the next
three years with the suggested priorities identified in the draft
- Older people and management of long term
- Mental health
- Acute hospital services.
Councillor Marcus Hart,
Chairman of the Health and Well-being Board and Cabinet Member for
Health and Well-being, said: "The Board has considered
what the vision and priorities should be for the next three years
but it is vital that people take the opportunity to be involved to
ensure that these are what matter most to local people."
