Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Engagement summary


During May-June we completed six prioritisation workshops with representatives from the Health and Wellbeing Board. These formed the first phase of the engagement process.

The second stage of the engagement process followed, with seven public engagement workshops held across the county from late June to July 2017. The workshops were attended by over 220 people, with representation from over 60 local partners, organisations and groups.

A public online survey was made available to support this wider engagement phase with 180 responses received.

The purpose of this phase was to give people an opportunity to have their say on what their health and wellbeing priorities are and why, using the evidence contained in the JSNA.

In July, a workshop was held with the Health Scrutiny Committee Working Group to obtain the committees views and priorities.

In August, we held a more focused Reference group to gather views and insight regarding the health and wellbeing priorities of those representing a diverse range of special interest groups.

The engagement was extensive and diverse with 400+ people involved, representing 100+ groups and organisations. Further details can be found in the full engagement report which can be downloaded from this webpage.

Feedback from the various engagement stages was provided to an informal session of the Health and Wellbeing Board in early September, with attendees given the opportunity to reflect on the outcome of the engagement, as well as discuss the possible approach to the next stage of development for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

The finding of all phases of the engagement was collated and summarised for consideration by the Health and Wellbeing Board at their meeting on 26th September 2017. The Board received a report on the findings of the engagement and agreed to undertake further work on the emerging priorities identified through the engagement. These are:

  • Mental Health - both Adults & Children and Young Peoples
  • Housing
  • Carers
  • Physical Activity
  • Dementia
  • Obesity
The Health and Wellbeing Board will undertake this work through further considering some key themes which emerged during the engagement. These include the need for the JHWS to have a strong focus on prevention and early intervention, that there is collective action across a range of organisations working in partnership to deliver the JHWS and the need for the JHWS to focus on tackling inequalities and equitable provision of services that support and promote health and wellbeing.

This work will be undertaken during October-December 2017 and presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board in December 2017, where the priority issues for inclusion in the strategy will be agreed.

The strategy will be drafted during early 2018, and the Health and Wellbeing Board were supportive of the need to continue to engage with the community throughout this process.
