Joint health and wellbeing strategy

Have your say on how Leicestershire County Council, the NHS and partners can help to improve health and wellbeing.

The consultation will run from 29 November 2021 to 23 January 2022

The Health and Wellbeing Board brings together organisations responsible for making decisions about health, wellbeing and care services in Leicestershire.

This includes the NHS, colleagues from Leicestershire County Council (Public Health, Adults and Communities, Children and Family Services), Healthwatch, the Officer of Police and Crime Commissioner, Police, District and Borough colleagues and other agencies with a responsibility for health and wellbeing.

The Board plans how best to meet the needs of the local population and tackle health inequalities and we do this through a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. 

Have your say on the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2022 – 2032, which sets out our ambitions and priorities for the next 10 years, and how we aim to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across Leicestershire. 

About our proposed strategy

The Draft Strategy is based on the life course to ensure everyone has opportunity to support their health and wellbeing: 

  • Best Start For life: To allow our children to have the best start for life, we will prioritise a range of actions covering the broader children’s age range of 0-19 years (or 0-25 years for Special Educational Needs and Disability) 
  • Staying Healthy, Safe and Well: Prevention is always better than cure, and good health and wellbeing is an asset to individuals, communities and the wider population. Therefore, we want to give everyone in Leicestershire the opportunity to live happy, healthy, safe and long lives without illness or disease for as long as possible 
  • Living and Supported Well: As people age, become unwell or develop one or more Long Term Conditions, it is important that they are supported to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible while maximising their quality of life. We will help them live as well as possible for as long as possible. 
  • Dying Well: End of life is an inevitable part of the life course, but we know that it is a difficult subject for many people to openly acknowledge and discuss.  We want to support Leicestershire to understand, normalise and plan for this stage of life to ensure everyone has choice about their care and treatment, and support for loved ones and carers. 

For each outcome, we have identified specific priorities which we will focus on achieving, along with evaluating, regular monitoring of progress and taking feedback from residents and communities. 

Have your say

An 8-week public consultation is taking place from 29 November 2021 to 23 January 2022, seeking feedback on the outcomes and priorities within the strategy.

Your feedback will help shape the final strategy that is being presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board in February 2022 and a summary of the consultation will be available to view on our You said, we did page.

This is only the start of the conversation. We will be providing regular updates on our commitments and outcomes to improve Health and Wellbeing in Leicestershire. At the end of the survey there is an opportunity to leave your email address to be updated on how the work progresses.
