Have your say on strategy for our health and wellbeing

BUCKS residents enjoy a high quality of life and a significantly better life expectancy than the national average, according to the Health and Wellbeing Board – a group bringing together representatives from the Bucks County Council, NHS Bucks, GP commissioners, district councils and community groups.

According to the board, most residents have a good level of health and wellbeing.

But there are areas where improvements can be made, and a new consultation has been launched to identify these.

Results from the consultation, which runs until April 9, will help shape the board’s final strategy, due out in the summer.

The board says Bucks’ Health & Wellbeing strategy will prioritise the issues requiring the greatest attention. Its aims are to ensure that every child has the best start in life; everyone takes greater responsibility for their health and wellbeing; everyone has an equal opportunity to access services and support to help them fulfil their potential, keeping people healthier for longer.

To take part in the consultation, visit the Have Your Say pages on Bucks County Council’s website www.buckscc.gov.uk/bcc/research/hwb_strategy.page Or request a paper consultation form by calling 01296 387728.
