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. 

The board are focussing on 4 priorities: Giving Every Child the Best Start in Life; Strengthening the Role and Impact of Ill Health Prevention; Creating and Developing Sustainable Places and Communities; and Ensuring a Healthy Standard of Living for All.
