Based on the needs identified in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), the Richmond Health and Wellbeing Board Strategy 2016-21 lays out the priorities of the Richmond Health and Wellbeing Board.
Health and care organisations in Richmond are working more closely together to make services better connected and more joined up.
The NHS, Council, voluntary sector and Healthwatch have come together to look at what’s important for health and care in Richmond, what the challenges are and how if different organisations work more closely together, we can make a difference.
Through partnership working and engagement with residents we have produced a local Health and Care Plan featuring themes of Start Well, Live Well and Age Well. Find out more about our Health and Care plans:
We are responsible for producing a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) which is designed to support the improvement of local health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities.
It does this by providing commissioners and other decision makers with relevant information to help them tailor services to the needs of the local population.
The Board also has a particular responsibility to develop a pharmaceutical needs assessment. This helps determine the number and location of community pharmacies in the borough.
