Reading's Health and Wellbeing Board is consulting on a draft strategy developed by Reading Borough Council, the local NHS, and Reading LINk.
The draft strategy for 2013 to 2016 outlines four goals that the Board feels it needs to focus on in order to make the biggest difference over the next few years, based on the 2012‐13 Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for Reading.
The 4 goals are:
1. Promote and protect the health of all communities particularly those
2. Increase the focus on early years and the whole family to help reduce health inequalities
3. Reduce the impact of long term conditions with approaches focused on
4. Promote health‐enabling behaviours & lifestyle tailored to the differing
needs of communities
The Board is seeking the views of interested groups and organisations, on the draft strategy by 14th December. This is an important opportunity to influence the priorities of the new Health and Wellbeing Board.
