Help shape our future priorities to improve health and wellbeing in Herefordshire
Let us know what you think we should focus on to improve health and wellbeing in the county
Herefordshire Council is working with health services and other organisations to develop a strategy to improve health and wellbeing in the county over the next 10 years, and is asking residents to help identify the things they think are most important.
Every area in the country has a health and wellbeing strategy which is refreshed every few years. This sets a shared direction for the council and partners to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.
We have identified a number of potential priority areas from information already available about the issues that are most affecting the health and wellbeing of residents in our county. The council would now like to hear from residents about the improvements they think local services should concentrate on. The feedback will help inform the content of the next health and wellbeing strategy which is due to be published in 2023.
For more information and to share your views and ideas, see: www.herefordshire.gov.uk/hwbs
The survey will be available until Sunday 11 December 2022.
Cllr Pauline Crockett, Cabinet member health and adult wellbeing, said:
“While many people in Herefordshire experience good health and wellbeing overall, we know that this is not shared by everyone. As people live longer with more complex health conditions; we must find new ways of helping people live healthy lives.
“The council works together with health services, the voluntary sector and other partner organisations to improve health, care and wellbeing for everyone who lives here. We all have a role to play in improving physical and mental health and wellbeing within our communities, which is not something that can be achieved without the involvement of the community itself.
“We now need your help to make sure we are focusing on the right issues and the areas you think will make the biggest difference and where we will see the greatest improvement. Your valued feedback will help shape our future priorities.”
