Health and wellbeing boards are a formal committee of the every English Council. They aim to promote greater integration and partnership between bodies from the NHS, public health and local government. They have a statutory duty, with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), to produce a joint strategic needs assessment and a joint health and wellbeing strategy for their local population.
This year the Hackney Health and Well-Being Board is renewing it strategy and want to make sure what it wants to do is important and matters to residents. This board is co-chaired by the Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, and Dr Mark Rickets Clinical Chair City and Hackney, the Northeast London CCG.
The Hackney Health and Wellbeing Strategy consultation is now open.
The Hackney Health and Wellbeing Board has drafted a Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2022-2026. This has three key things the Board want to work on together, to improve health and reduce inequalities. They are:
- improving mental health and preventing mental ill-health
- increasing social connection
- supporting greater financial security and reducing poverty
They want to find out if you agree with these priorities and if you have any suggestions.
Your views matter, so please take part in this short survey which should take around 10 minutes to complete. You will find it helpful to take a look at the draft strategy here before completing this. Please get in touch with Sara Bainbridge – firstname.lastname@example.org – if you would like a paper copy or in another format or language.
Fill out the survey before 17th February 2022 here
