Report for approval – Gemma McKinnon
The Health and Wellbeing Board had a statutory duty to develop a Health and Wellbeing Strategy (HWBS). This would translate findings from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) into priorities to help determine actions by local authorities, NHS and other partners to address the wider determinants that impacted on health and wellbeing.
The Board had agreed to refresh the HWBS to align with developments in the wider system including the Coventry and Warwickshire Health and Care Partnership, Five-Year Health and Care Plan, and the Coventry HWBS for 2019-23.
An update was provided on work to refresh the HWBS and the proposed approach to consultation. It was noted that timescales for the consultation had been delayed due to Covid-19. There were some new findings to be included, such as on the Covid-19 recovery plan and current survey work. It was proposed to undertake consultation on the strategy for a five-week period between November 2020 and January 2021. An outline was given of the engagement plans using both paper and digital forms as well as presentations for partners and a targeted approach for key groups. Board members were encouraged to publicise the consultation.
Questions and comments were invited, with responses provided as indicated:
That the Board notes the update on the refresh of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy and endorses the proposed approach to consultation, noting the likely delay to the process due to Covid-19.
