The first Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Lincolnshire has been published.
This document outlines five themes and a number of priorities that will help to improve people’s lives by informing future investment and decision making across Lincolnshire.
Feedback from members of the public, voluntary groups and health and care professionals have been used to shape the document, written by GPs and people who invest in health and social care services, following a public consultation earlier in the year.
The five themes within the strategy are:
Promoting healthier lifestyles
Improve the health and wellbeing of older people
Deliver high quality systematic care of major causes of ill health and disability
Improving health and social outcomes and reducing health inequalities for children
Tackling the social determinants of health
In addition, the impact on people’s mental health and the needs of carers have been considered throughout each of the five themes.
