Health & Wellbeing Strategy
The Health and Social Care Act 2012 specifies that the main role of the Board is to promote the health and wellbeing of the local population by coordinating the commissioning of health and wellbeing services and promoting the integration of services. It will achieve this through the development of a health and wellbeing strategy based on an assessment of need. Solihull Council and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group have an equal responsibility to prepare the strategy through the Solihull Health and Wellbeing Board.
In April 2014 the Health and Wellbeing Board and Children and Young People’s Trust Board were merged to create a single partnership body with responsibility for improving the health and wellbeing of Solihull citizens, from conception to end of life.
The Boards Health and Wellbeing Strategy is a revised version of that originally published in 2012 and incorporates the Children and Young People’s Plan 2013 – 16. The Strategy is based on substantial work on the identification of shared health and wellbeing priorities. Consequently, this is the strategy for meeting the needs identified in the Solihull Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2012 and the Children’s Outcomes Review 2011, and explains the health and wellbeing priorities that the Board has set to improve the health and wellbeing of the Solihull community and reduce health inequalities.
The strategy can be accessed on the main council website.
