Shropshire Council

What is the Health and Wellbeing Board in Shropshire?

Health and Wellbeing Boards are an important feature of the reforms brought about by the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The Health and Wellbeing Board acts to ensure that key leaders from the health and care system work together to improve the health and wellbeing of Shropshire residents. Health and Wellbeing Board members collaborate to understand their local community’s needs, agree priorities and work together to plan how best to deliver services.

The Board meets six times a year on alternate months, and meeting dates can be found by following this link.

Our aim is:

  • To improve the population’s health and wellbeing;
  • to reduce health inequalities that can cause unfair and avoidable differences in people’s health;
  • to help as many people as possible live long, happy and productive lives by promoting health and wellbeing at all stages of life.

Our Vision is:

For Shropshire people to be the healthiest and most fulfilled in England
