Health and Wellbeing Board
Improving Health and Wellbeing Together
We want people in Wakefield to have healthier, happier and longer lives with less inequality. To do this people living and working in the district need to work together. The Wakefield Health and Wellbeing Board brings together key organisations to oversee the plans for improving the health and wellbeing of the people in Wakefield.
The Board uses information from people living and working in Wakefield for its Joint Strategic Needs Assessment of the main health, wellbeing and social care issues in the District. They have produced a Health and Wellbeing Strategy for improving the six health and wellbeing priorities in the district shown in the picture below. A summary / Easy Read version of the document has also been put together.
The Board are focussing three priorities: Tobacco control, Mental Health and Wellbeing and Integration of Health and Social Care Services for Older People (link to be included at a later date).
Why not come along?
The Board meets every other month and members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend. Take a look at what the board have been discussing, details of the next board meeting and what they will be discussing.
