Our Priorities

Homepage » About us » Our Priorities

Our priorities are:

Tackle population health issues where Cumbria is performing poorly, this includes:

• Tackling health inequalities

• Improving the quality of health and care provision

• Creating a health and wellbeing system fit for the future

Local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have equal and joint duties to prepare the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS)| through the Health and Wellbeing Board.

In preparing the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, Health and Wellbeing Boards must have regard to the Secretary of State’s mandate to NHS England which sets out the Government’s priorities for the NHS. They should explain what priorities the health and wellbeing board has set in order to tackle the needs identified in their Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

Select Here| to find out more about Cumbria's Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) from 2015 onwards. The JSNA is an assessment of the current and future health and social care needs of Cumbria’s local communities. Findings from the JSNA support the development of a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Cumbria that sets out priorities to improve health and wellbeing outcomes throughout the county and aims to reduce inequalities.
