Health and wellbeing strategy
The responsibility for delivery of the strategy falls on the health and wellbeing board.
The health and wellbeing strategy explains what priorities the health and wellbeing board has set in order to tackle the needs identified in the joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA).
This strategy outlines the key health and wellbeing challenges we face, as well as the assets, skills and services that are available locally to support people to stay healthy and be happier.
It identifies nine priority areas for action over the next 10 years. These are:
- achieving a healthy weight
- increasing the number of people who survive colorectal, breast and lung cancer for 1 and 5 years
- improving immunisation uptake
- reducing alcohol harm
- preventing the uptake of smoking among children and young people and reducing the numbers of people smoking
- improving mental health and wellbeing
- improving sexual health
- delaying and reducing the need for long term care and support.
- reducing the number of emergency admissions for people with long-term conditions.
