Looking after the health and wellbeing of the population of Nottingham is not the responsibility of one single organisation. Health and Wellbeing Boards bring leaders from the local health and care system together, to work with other partners to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.

Nottingham’s Health and Wellbeing Board includes members from the NHS, including GPs and hospitals, social care, public health, police, community and voluntary services as well as councillors and Healthwatch.

The board has a duty to produce:

  • a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) – an assessment of current and future health and care needs in the local population, and;
  • a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy – a local strategy for the local population addressing the needs identified in the JSNA.

This Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (2022-2025) sets out our shared vision, principles and priorities for action over the next three years to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across Nottingham City.

More details about the Health and Wellbeing Board, can be found here.

All partner organisations have their own strategies and priorities that they are working towards.  In developing this Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy we have considered these priorities, as well as national strategies that we have to take into account.  We have also looked at data and intelligence, including listening to communities to make sure that the work of the Health and Wellbeing Board will complement, not duplicate work elsewhere.
