Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Have Your Say on Health and Wellbeing in Bedford Borough

 

Bedford Borough Council and Bedfordshire CCG are consulting on the new Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, and are asking local residents to have their say.

 

This Strategy underpins the work of the local Health and Wellbeing Board, which brings the NHS, public health, social care, children’s services, Healthwatch, and elected representatives together to consider the health and wellbeing needs of those living in Bedford Borough.

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson, Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board said “Our vision for Bedford Borough is that residents are able to live healthy and independent lives. We need to promote strong and safe communities, and to ensure people have easy access to high quality and efficient public services.

 

Cllr Louise Jackson, Portfolio Holder for Public Health explained that “This Strategy underpins the works of the Health and Wellbeing Board in delivering our vision for local residents across Bedford Borough. That is why it is so important to make sure you have your say, and tell us if you agree with our priorities and plans for the coming years.”

 

The Strategy has three priority areas. First to give children and young people the best start in life, setting the foundations for  good health and wellbeing through life; second to enable adults and older people to live well and remain independent; and third to promote strong, safe and healthy communities.

 

Accountable Officer for Bedfordshire CCG and Vice Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board, Sarah Thompson said “Building on what we have achieved since the first Joint Strategy in 2013, this Strategy looks to address the challenges we face in helping local people to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing.  It is important that we hear the views of residents through the consultation to ensure our priorities and plans are meeting the local need.”

 

You can view and respond to the consultation online at www.bedford.gov.uk/hwb, or by email at consultingbedford@bedford.gov.uk. There are also copies of the consultation document and paper response forms available at all Borough Libraries, the Customer Contact Centre and Borough Hall.

 

The consultation runs from Tuesday 30th January to Monday 26th March 2018.
