Health and wellbeing board

Health and wellbeing board consultation

Dear local resident,    

We would like your views on how we can improve our health and social care system in Hammersmith and Fulham over the next five years.

The draft Hammersmith and Fulham Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-21 sets out how we are working to create a health and social care system that focuses on the needs of residents and supports communities to stay well by consistently providing high quality care. We want your views to help us shape the final version of this strategy.

Background

Joint health and wellbeing strategies enable local councillors, GPs and directors of public health, adult and children’s services to work with communities in leading a more effective and responsive local health and care system. They sit at the heart of local commissioning decisions, underpinning improved health, social care and public health outcomes for Hammersmith & Fulham.

Over the past six months, the Hammersmith and Fulham Health and Wellbeing Board has undertaken a review of local needs and hosted conversations with members of the public, staff from local authority and NHS organisations, and voluntary and community sector representatives. This has helped us identify four priority areas that we believe have the potential to make the greatest and fastest improvements to health and wellbeing over the next five years: 

  1. Supporting good mental health for all
  2. Supporting children, young people and families to have the best possible start
  3. Addressing the rising tide of long-term conditions
  4. Building a sustainable health and social care system that is fit for the future

To help us develop the strategy further, we want to hear from everyone who lives, works in or visits the borough about whether they think these are the right priorities and what actions can be taken to make a real impact on health and wellbeing.

 

Consultation questions

The main consultation questions are:

  • To what extent do you agree that we have chosen the right issues to focus on for the next five years?
  • If anything, what else should be a priority for us for the next five years?
  • What action should we take to deliver our four priorities?
  • How can you/your organisation support the Health and Wellbeing Board to deliver our four priorities?

 

How to respond

The consultation will run for 14 weeks. It will end on 18 October 2016. This will help make sure everyone has a chance to give us their views. Please ensure your response reaches us before the deadline.
