Hertsmere Health and Wellbeing Partnership

The Health and Wellbeing Partnership is the formal representative body for Hertsmere Borough Council and the Local Strategic Partnership.

It is the first point of contact and consultee on matters under consideration by the County Health and Wellbeing Board, County Health Scrutiny Committee and NHS Hertfordshire, including reviewing proposed changes to local service provision and assessing the impact on the local community.

The Health and Wellbeing Partnership works together to develop and support initiatives to address the causes of ill health and to promote healthy and active lifestyles for all residents.

Hertsmere Health and Wellbeing Strategy

The purpose of this strategy is to set out the vision for health and wellbeing in Hertsmere, it will be implemented by the Health and Wellbeing Partnership in Hertsmere.

Health and wellbeing affects each and every one of us. We each have a responsibility to ensure that good health and wellbeing is promoted in our families, workplaces and communities.

Following a brief consultation at the end of 2017, a refreshed strategy has been produced. Hertsmere Borough Council recognises that we cannot achieve the priorities in this strategy alone. To make the strategy a reality we will need to work in partnership with a number of organisations to provide opportunities for everyone in the borough to improve their health and wellbeing.
