Joint health and well-being work highlighted in annual report
The work carried out to improve the health and well-being of residents is celebrated in an annual report published by the North Wales Regional Partnership Board
The Board, made up of representatives from local councils, health, third and independent sectors have worked on a wide range of areas of work, including older people with complex needs and long term conditions; people with learning disabilities; cares, family support services and children with complex needs.
During the last year, the Board has also worked in partnership to deliver the regional mental health strategy and arrangements have been made to shared budgets to progress with key areas of work.
Key to all of this work is to plan services that meet the needs of residents.
Chair of the Board, Councillor Gareth Roberts, said: “This report reflects the tremendous amount of work that is going on across North Wales to improve the health and well-being of all of our residents. We cannot do this work alone and we are lucky to have a wide range of organisations that are committed to working together, both now and in the future.
“There is more to do but I am confident that we can build upon the strong foundations that have been set and that we can provide the right type of local strategic leadership on health and social care.
“As a Board we are continually challenging ourselves and being challenged by our Third Sector, Individual and Carer representatives to be clear and confident that we are doing the right thing for our population, and we believe that we can achieve this by having the accountability for change held closer to the people that we serve.
