Health and Wellbeing Strategy

How we work with others to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Rutland

The Health and Wellbeing Board brings local stakeholders together to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Rutland.

Local health and care organisations have worked with the public to produce a new Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2022-2027.

The aim of Rutland's strategy is safe, healthy and caring communities where people start well and thrive together through their life.

The strategy consists of seven priorities covering the whole life course. This highlights the reference number of the strategy, what it is we want to achieve, how we are going to achieve it and a RAG rating which indicates progress:

  • red – off track
  • amber – off track but mitigations in place to recover
  • green – on track
  • grey – not started
  • blue – complete
