Northumberland County Council and NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working together to improve the overall health and wellbeing of the county’s residents and reduce inequalities over the next ten years.
Health and care leaders from the Health and Wellbeing Board have drafted a new Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the county. This explains what priorities the board has set in order to tackle the county’s health needs.
People living and working across Northumberland are being asked to share their views on future health and care priorities by completing an online survey. Feedback will help shape the final Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy which is due to be published later this year. There is also the opportunity to meet with staff from Northumberland CCG at four events to be held across the county this month:
- Wednesday 15 August: 2.00pm – 4.30pm, Morpeth Town Hall, Morpeth NE61 1LZ
- Thursday 16 August: 2.00pm – 4.30pm, Isabella Community Centre, Ogle Drive, Blyth NE24 5JF
- Friday 17 August: 2.00pm – 4.30pm, Hexham Abbey, Hexham NE46 3NB
- Monday 20 August: 2.00pm – 4.30pm, Northumberland Hall, Alnwick NE66 1TN
The online survey can be completed here until Friday 7 September.
