HEALTH AND WELLBEING STRATEGY [SERVICE MONITORING AND ISSUES OF LOCAL CONCERN - FOR DISCUSSION] [AGENDA ITEM ONLY] pdf icon PDF 1 MB

    The recently published Surrey Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out core priorities for improving health and wellbeing across the population, with targets for the next 10 years. We are currently developing the implementation plans for each priority which are centred around opportunities where we could work together as a partnership to improve the lives of our most vulnerable residents. This presentation by Mr Rob Moran, Elmbridge Borough Council Chief Executive, will update the Committee on the proposed approach taken by the Surrey Health and Wellbeing Board and include examples of where this will affect Elmbridge and what this means. It will be an opportunity to consider the strategy further and allow councillors the opportunity to contribute to its development.
