The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Health & Wellbeing Boards invite you to comment on the Draft Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2019 – 2029.

Read the Health and Wellbeing Strategy Summary Document

The draft joint strategy will set out our intentions for:

  • improving the health and wellbeing of residents across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
  • reducing health inequalities over the next 10 years

This is the first joint strategy produced by the Health and Wellbeing Boards for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It is reflective of a closer working relationship and the need for a shared vision for the health of our populations. It is an important document as the following groups must take it into account when preparing their plans:

  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • Local Authorities and
  • NHS England

It will also inform our NHS long term plan.

Our efforts rely on all of our partners who play a key role in improving the quality of life for all our residents. Through this new strategy, we are

  • signalling an important shift to a more preventative approach
  • creating positive wellbeing
  • addressing the root causes of poor health, including things like poor housing and the environment

We are not simply focusing on treating the symptoms. This is why our strategy will also look for more opportunities to:

  • work together
  • share resources and
  • build upon examples of good work across organisations

The consultation will run from 1 August 2019 until 25 September 2019.
