People living in Rutland have until Sunday 16 January to read and comment on a new Health and Well-being Strategy for the county before public consultation draws to an end.
As part of new ways of working between the NHS and councils across the country, local areas are looking at how they can best improve the health and wellbeing of their communities. This has led to the creation of a new Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Rutland.
This strategy has been produced by Rutland’s Health and Wellbeing Board, which brings together lots of different organisations that are responsible for people’s health and care, including local NHS services. The Health and Wellbeing Board is asking people in Rutland to share their views as part of a public consultation on the new Health and Wellbeing Strategy, before it is finalised.
Rutland’s new Health and Wellbeing Strategy has six priority themes which will help to focus improvements over the next three years:
- The best start to life
- Healthy and independent for as long as possible
- Reducing health inequalities
- Equitable access to health and wellbeing services
- Preparing for population growth and change
- Making sure people are well supported in the last phase of their lives
A draft version of the new Health and Well-being Strategy has been published online for everyone to read: www.rutland.gov.uk/healthandwellbeingstrategy.
An Easy Read version of the strategy and survey are also available online for anyone with special educational needs and disabilities.
The consultation on Rutland’s Draft Health and Wellbeing Strategy has been extended by a week and now closes on Sunday 16 January 2022. Full details can be found online at: www.rutland.gov.uk/healthandwellbeingstrategy. You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who would like to take part in the consultation but does not have access to the internet can call Rutland County Council on: 01572 722 577.
