Have your say and help shape the new health and wellbeing ‘place’ plan
22 July 2019
Cheshire West and Chester Council and the local NHS are developing an exciting new proposal for residents’ health and wellbeing. The draft Cheshire West Place Plan outlines the borough’s approach to health and wellbeing over the next five years. It will replace the current Health and Wellbeing strategy.
Within Cheshire West the demand for health and care support services is increasing rapidly as our population ages and our local health challenges increase. There is a drive in the borough, as well as on a national scale, to integrate health and social care services in order to improve population health, increase the quality of care and address increasing financial pressures on the health and care system.
The approach to integrating care is place-based with services being offered in a more joined-up way, improving efficiencies across the borough and enabling local people to access high-quality care when they need it. The aim is to prevent ill health, unnecessary hospital admissions and ensure that local, high quality services are sustainable for the future.
Anyone of any age who lives in the borough can view the draft Place Plan and get involved by visiting the website www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/placeplanconsultation and completing the online questionnaire.
You can share your views until August 18th 2019. Your views are really important and will help shape future health and care services within Cheshire West.
