People are being urged to have share their views on a new strategy to help keep people in Leicestershire healthy.
A public consultation is seeking feedback on the outcomes and priorities of Leicestershire’s next health and wellbeing strategy.
The Leicestershire Health and Wellbeing Board brings together organisations responsible for making decisions about health, wellbeing and care services in Leicestershire.
This includes Leicestershire County Council, the NHS, Healthwatch, the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner, police, district councils and other organisations with a responsibility for health and wellbeing.
The board plans how best to meet the needs of the local population and tackle health inequalities through a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
