Health and Wellbeing
Gosport Borough Council works with partner organisations to deliver action at a local level to improve health outcomes for people living in the Borough. Organisations in Gosport have a strong culture of working together and this has been built upon in developing a collaborative approach to improve health and wellbeing for local people. As part of this work, the Gosport Health & Wellbeing Strategic Partnership aims to provide a collaborative approach to improving health outcomes for local residents, particularly following the impact of the Corona virus pandemic. This group will help to identify key priorities and how these can be met as a partnership, which will be updated following publication of the latest JSNA data later in January 2022.
The Partnership priorities are shaped by local evidence of health set out within the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and Health Profile for Gosport. Hampshire County Council's Public Health Department has a responsibility for public health services, and to implement a Health and Wellbeing Board who agree ways to improve local health and wellbeing. The Hampshire Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out the context for local area partnerships and the shared priorities plan for the Gosport Health and Wellbeing Partnership is aligned with the County strategy.
