Delivering the strategy

Although the strategy includes a limited number of areas to focus on, its scope is wide and delivery will require a “health in all policies” approach, advocating for health considerations to be incorporated into decision making across sectors, policy and service areas.

The areas for collective action cover responsibilities of a number of organisations and partnerships and some are already included in existing strategies and commissioning and action plans. Implementation of these will be key to delivery of the vision and outcomes of this strategy. Careful consideration has been given to where and how the Health and Wellbeing Board can add value to existing work to achieve better outcomes through the strategy.

The Health & Wellbeing Board will oversee and drive the implementation of the strategy through its member organisations and partnerships, which in turn will be accountable to the Board for progress. Health and Wellbeing Board members will act as champions for the areas for collective action across South Gloucestershire.

As plans are refreshed and new plans are developed, the Health and Wellbeing Board will ensure they are aligned to priorities set out within the strategy and the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment. This will allow the strategic actions to be kept live and relevant to the needs of our local population.

In addition to delivering this strategy the Health and Wellbeing Board has a wider role to ensure that high quality, person-centred integrated care and support is a reality for the population of South Gloucestershire. For the duration of this strategy the Board will therefore continue to provide leadership for and monitor the allocation of health and social care resources, and the commissioning and delivery of services to meet needs and priorities across South Gloucestershire, as identified in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).
