Overview

The Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB) is a partnership board consisting of members from the local authority, NHS and the voluntary and community sectors. The main aim of the HWBB is to promote greater partnership and integration of services across NHS, public health, local government and voluntary and community sector organisations. You can find out more information about the current membership and the HWBB meetings here. One of the tasks of the HWBB is to produce a Joint Health and Wellbeing strategy based on its population’s needs.

The Draft Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021-25 is our vision for health in Barnet and the steps we will take to achieve our aims. It’s important to us that we gather your views on the draft strategy to ensure that our plan for the next four years takes your needs and priorities into account. The strategy was developed through engaging with partners, HWBB members and residents through engagement activities conducted in 2019.

Our vision is to make Barnet the London Borough of Health. A healthy borough makes healthy people. It is where the environment around us supports and promotes our health and wellbeing. In a healthy borough, everyone has access to a good education and can experience good and secure housing and employment. High quality health and social care is available for anyone when they need it. A healthy borough reaches out to the most vulnerable, giving everyone opportunities to thrive. With healthier and happier residents, communities are strengthened to support each other, and the local culture and economy flourishes.

For the next four years, the Barnet Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB) will focus on three key areas in order to drive improvements in health and wellbeing in the borough. These key areas are:

  1. Creating a healthier place and resilient communities
  2. Starting, living and ageing well
  3. Ensuring delivery of coordinated holistic care, when we need it
