Public health

We are responsible for improving public health in North Yorkshire. A health and wellbeing board has been set up to implement this work and as part of this, a health and wellbeing strategy has been created.

You can find out more information, as well as related resources, below:

Health and wellbeing board

The health and wellbeing board works to improve public health in North Yorkshire through effective integrated working between commissioners of health, public health and social care services.

Read more about the health and wellbeing board on the North Yorkshire partnerships website.

Joint health and wellbeing strategy

The joint health and wellbeing strategy is produced by the health and wellbeing board. It explains what health and wellbeing priorities the board has set, in order to tackle the needs identified in the joint strategic needs assessment (see below). It is not about taking action on everything at once, but about setting priorities for joint action and making a real impact on people's lives.

Read more about the joint health and wellbeing strategy on the North Yorkshire partnerships website.

Director of public health report

The director of public health report highlights some of our key priority areas. It provides a snapshot of where we are now and celebrates the wide variety of actions currently being carried out to improve the health of the population in North Yorkshire. It also contains recommendations to guide efforts over the next year to improve the health of people in North Yorkshire and reduce health inequalities between communities.

You can see more information as well as download the full report from the director of public health report page on the North Yorkshire partnerships website.

Joint strategic needs assessment

The joint strategic needs assessment is produced by the health and wellbeing board. A joint strategic needs assessment brings together local authorities, the community and voluntary sector service users and NHS partners to research and agree local health and wellbeing needs. It also supports and encourages organisations to work together when developing services.

Our joint strategic needs assessment looks at what we know about the people of North Yorkshire and their current and future health and wellbeing needs. It does not look at the particular needs of individual people; it looks at the 'big picture' of people's needs in North Yorkshire and where needs are not being met as well as they could be.
