Somerset Health and Wellbeing Board


Our shared Vision for Health and Wellbeing in Somerset is that:
People live healthy and independent lives, supported by thriving and connected communities with timely and easy access to high-quality and efficient public services when they need them.

Our three priorities for Health and Wellbeing in Somerset are:

  • People, families and communities take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.
  • Families and communities are thriving and resilient.
  • Somerset people are able to live independently.

Somerset Strategic Housing Framework Workshop Summary

Our board looks at people's health and social care needs together, as well as taking into account the bigger picture - things like transport, housing, jobs and leisure - so that services truly help people stay healthy and independent. 

Members of the board must look at the evidence of what works best to help target plans and resources. To help to do this the board publishes Joint Strategic Needs Assessments 

We have an Annual Programme of Work which is set out on a plan on a page.
