Healthy Lives

Shropshire Council with its partners have an ambition to support Shropshire people to become the healthiest and most fulfilled in England. To support this aim, local leaders of health and care organisations are shifting their focus from ‘fixing disease’ towards promoting and maintaining health; recognising there are no easy solutions to this but working collectively to identify and test out solutions.

The Healthy Lives Programme combines the key health prevention actions of the Better Care Fund, Shropshire CCG, Public Health, NHS providers and the voluntary sector to take a collective approach to reducing demand on services and improving health & wellbeing.
