Living Well in Warwickshire - Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2020-25

Closes 5 Jan 2021

Opened 23 Nov 2020

Overview

The Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board is committed to helping people be as well as possible. The Board (comprised of public and voluntary sector representatives from health and care, councils, the NHS and wider partners) helps to ensure people have access to information and services to enable them to make positive choices about their health. The Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out the Board’s ambitions and approach to make sure support is effective and available where it is most needed.  

We have drafted our Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2020-2025, using findings from our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and our recent Covid-19 recovery survey and health impact assessment (HIA). Our next step to shape the strategy further is to find out more about what you think of our proposals.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation is a chance for people to have a say about the draft strategy, its ambitions and priorities and our proposed ways of working. By completing the survey, people can let the Board know if we are focussing on the right aspects. People can also inform the Board about how and where messages should be delivered to best reach all Warwickshire communities.  

Overall health in Warwickshire is good compared with the rest of the country, but there are areas where improvements can be made. The demand for health and care services is increasing with a growing and ageing population. There are avoidable differences in health outcomes, often linked to lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity and smoking, which affect healthy life expectancy (see figure below). These inequalities in health are under-pinned by factors such as education, employment, housing and a healthy environment.Males in Warwickshire spend an average of 13.7 years in poor health, whilst women spend 17.3 years in poor health.

In Warwickshire, on average males spent 13.7 years of their lives in ill health, whilst females spend 17.3 years in ill health.
