Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Under the Health and Social Care Act (2012) it is a statutory responsibility for the Health and Wellbeing Board to set a joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which sets the overarching framework for health and care plans in Rotherham.

The Health and Wellbeing Strategy was agreed in March 2018 and sets the strategic vision for how health and care services will be delivered to those who need it, with a strong focus on reducing health inequalities. Achieving the vision of this strategy is the combined responsibility of all members of the Health and Wellbeing Board.

The strategy includes four aims which the board has agreed are the most important things to focus on to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for all Rotherham people. All of these aims are best tackled by a ‘whole system’ approach, as the involvement of the whole range of partners at the Health and Wellbeing Board is needed to achieve improvement.

The four aims of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy are:

  • All children get the best start in life and go on to achieve their potential
  • All Rotherham people enjoy the best possible mental health and wellbeing and have a good quality of life
  • All Rotherham people live well for longer
  • All Rotherham people live in healthy, safe and resilient communities
