Healthier Greenwich Partnership is a collective of organisations in the Royal Borough of Greenwich working together to support the health, care and wellbeing needs of local residents. It includes partners from the NHS, council, social care, and the community and voluntary sector. The strategy describes how partners will work together with the people who live, work or study in Royal Greenwich to create a happier, healthier place to be.
The Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets-out the mental and physical health and wellbeing priorities for the next 5 years.
These priorities are built on our understandings of the things that matter most to our residents. Through various engagement processes, we have heard from residents about the things that support and enable them to live their best lives from childhood to older age.
We’ve built this strategy around 5 key aims: start well, be well, feel well, stay well and age well.
Supporting Greenwich residents to start well
Supporting Greenwich residents to be well
Supporting Greenwich residents to feel well
Supporting Greenwich residents to age well
Cllr Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Services said:
“This new strategy will help our borough become a happier and healthier place to be. We know that the current cost of living crisis has affected many people’s ability to exercise and eat well, so our strategy provides opportunities for people to be active in their everyday lives and enjoy access to affordable healthy food.
A priority for us in Royal Greenwich is to tackle health inequalities for certain under-represented groups, the new Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out the framework on how we will work to achieve this.”
Neil Kennett-Brown, Chief Operating Officer NHS South East London ICB (Greenwich) said:
“Partnership working is the critical aspect of this strategy. Working together across our organisations, and with residents, will enable us to make more of a positive impact on people’s lives in the borough.”
