Health and wellbeing is an issue relevant to all residents of Warwickshire. Good health and wellbeing allows people to enjoy a good quality of life, maximise their potential and be active members of a community.
The Health and wellbeing strategy has been refreshed up to 2020. It highlights the improvements in health and wellbeing that have been achieved since 2014 but recognises that more needs to be done to prevent ill-health and reduce inequalities, build resilience in communities and integrate services.

The Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board provides a countywide approach to improving local health and social care, public health and community services so that individuals, service-users and the public experience more ‘joined up’ care. The Health and Wellbeing Board is also responsible for leading locally on tackling health inequalities.
Looking after the health and wellbeing of the population of Warwickshire is not the responsibility of one single body. Statutory and non-statutory organisations, including the voluntary sector, across the county all play a part in impacting on our health and wellbeing and influencing our behaviour. The Health and Wellbeing Strategy provides Warwickshire residents and organisations with a picture of what the Health and Wellbeing Board, through its members and wider partners, will need to deliver over the next 5 years and how we will work together to achieve this.
The Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board has agreed three priorities that will inform how we will work together, develop actions and report on our progress on improving the health and wellbeing of Warwickshire.
