Barnet Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHSW)
The strategy sets out the commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of those who live, work and study in Barnet.
The aim of this strategy is to create a borough of health.
It's based around 3 key areas. Developed through public consultation, engagement with partners and needs identified in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.
These key areas of focus are:
- Creating a healthier place and resilient communities
- Starting, living and ageing well
- Ensuring delivery of coordinated and holistic care, when we need it
The Health and Wellbeing Board is committed to delivering the JHWS. It will receive regular progress reports on the implementation and work.
