Health and Wellbeing in Shropshire
Our vision is for ‘a flourishing Shropshire’. This means people are able to live healthy and happy lives. Alongside the Shropshire Health and Wellbeing Board, organisations from across Shropshire are working to reduce health inequalities and improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.
Partners involved in working to improve health and wellbeing include Councils, public sector agencies, the voluntary and community sector, businesses, young people and equality & diversity communities. Have a look here to see a list of some of our partners.
Shropshire Health and Wellbeing Board
Shropshire’s Health and Wellbeing Board has a number of statutory responsibilities including the development of the health and wellbeing strategy, commissioning health services and holding health care providers to account. Please see the Terms of Reference for the Board.
The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out the long term vision for health and wellbeing in Shropshire and identifies the immediate priority areas for action. For a list of all previous minutes of the meetings, follow this link.
Shropshire’s developing strategy is based upon evidence produced from a comprehensive Joint Strategic Needs Assessment Summary (JSNA) of Shropshire’s population, coupled with feedback gained from engagement events held with a wide range of stakeholders including partner organisations, patient and service user groups and service providers. The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment Summary document is available here.
