Staffordshire Health and Wellbeing Board has drawn on local insight, considered current health and wellbeing need and determined the following as priorities for focused attention and action. Under each priority area we identify the outcomes we want to achieve, the local community assets and partners we will work with.
- Health in early life
- Good mental health
- Healthy weight
- Healthy ageing
Partners across Staffordshire have a shared ambition to build a health and social care system that delivers improved outcomes for our communities in the most efficient and effective way possible.
Our aim is to provide strategic leadership across the whole health care and social care sector, to make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of local people.
The Staffordshire HWBB has a number of ongoing responsibilities, including producing the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). The JSNA analyses and examines the current and future health and wellbeing needs of the local population and is used to inform and guide the commissioning of health, wellbeing and social care services. The PNA looks at the current provision of pharmaceutical services, makes an assessment to see if this meets current and future needs and identifies any potential gaps. The latest JSNA and PNA are available from the Staffordshire Observatory. Each Borough and District Council within staffordshire has produced an enhanced JSNA (eJSNA) to reflect how the JSNA will be implemented at a local level.
Further details on the Board's priorities can be found in the Health and wellbeing strategy 2022-2027.
