Health and Wellbeing Achievements – 2018

The Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board Annual Review 2017/2018 and Delivery Plan 2018/2019 were recently approved by Cabinet.

The documents highlight partner achievements over the past year as well as a focus for health and wellbeing in the coming year.

The annual review presents many examples of achievements taken from across the services provided by social care, public health, clinical commissioning groups, hospitals and health providers, as well as emergency, voluntary and community services. Accompanying case studies expand on these good examples in more detail

Read the annual review and supporting case studies.

Key achievements include:

  • Joint Place Forum established bringing together the Warwickshire and Coventry Health and Wellbeing Board.
  • Heart Shield project delivered training in emergency life support skills to 3,700 secondary school children in Warwickshire.
  • Home Environment Assessment Response Team (HEART) supporting customers to remain in their homes that are safe and warm by providing adaptations and speeding up the processing of grants.
  • NHS Diabetes prevention programme rolled out
  • These achievements are summarised within the annual review. They are also set out as individual case studies demonstrating the activity taken, the impact it has had and planned future actions.

    The Delivery and Development programme sets out a clear work programme of activity for 2018/2019. Areas of priority over the coming year are making prevention everyone’s business; improving housing and wellbeing; ensuring early help for vulnerable children; integration of services; and adding value to acute service redesign.

    The board will also fulfil a number of statutory duties, including the delivery of the place based Joint Strategic Needs Assessment; completion of the pharmaceutical needs assessment and endorsement of the Clinical Commissioning Intentions.

    A key area of focus will be the Coventry and Warwickshire Year of Wellbeing, you can find out more here http://yearofwellbeing.org.uk
