Strategies and Reports
Public Health work with health and social care partners to look at the health needs of our residents. Information and intelligence (both qualitative and quantitative) is combined to create plans to meet the needs identified and detail how we will work collaboratively to help tackle inequalities in the borough.
The approach the Public Health team and partners are taking to address the health needs identified in Needs Assessments are set out in strategies.
As well as an overarching public health strategy, there are also more specific strategies to address specific topics and needs. These often contain more detail on how the strategy will be delivered than the overarching strategy.
Every council's Director of Public Health has a statutory responsibility to produce an annual report.
