Have your say on county’s health and wellbeing
2:30pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in News
PEOPLE across Dorset can have their say or plans to improve health and wellbeing in the county.
The Health and Wellbeing Board, which aims to tackle inequalities across the population will come into operation next year.
A list of priorities and principles has been drawn up to guide the work of the board, and people can now have their say on this strategy.
Dorset’s Health and Wellbeing Board was established earlier this year and will take on statutory powers in April 2013.
Made up of local council members and officers, GPs and representatives from the voluntary sector, it will set out to improve joint working across different agencies.
Board chairman Dr Forbes Watson said: “We hope this strategy will help different agencies work more effectively together, making the most of our resources and delivering improvements in services which matter most to people in Dorset.”
Public consultation on the strategy will run until November 2. Access a copy by contacting Lucy Johns, on 01305 224388 or visit consultationtracker.dorsetforyou.com/JHWS
