Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way we provide health and social care in Buckinghamshire.  The Buckinghamshire ICP agreed to undertake a comprehensive programme of public engagement about the changes we have made and discuss some the changes we are considering in order to reset health and social care services for the future.


The engagement programme has been developed around the following 4 themes – reducing health inequalities, community services, keeping people safe and non face-to-face services.


The programme and survey launched on 24th August 2020 and the survey closed on 19th October 2020.  Further engagement work is planned in November.  A fuller discussion on the outcomes of this work will be discussed at the January meeting.

Director for Public Health Annual Report pdf icon PDF 811 KB

Each year the Director of Public Health produces an annual report on the health of their population.  In light of the creation of the new Buckinghamshire Council and its 16 Community Boards, this year’s report focuses on the overall health and wellbeing of Buckinghamshire’s population. It serves as a baseline against which progress in improving the health and wellbeing of our population can be measured.  It highlights the many opportunities that the new unitary council and members have to improve the health of our residents through the council’s actions on community engagement and leadership, transport, planning, the environment, the economy, education and other services.  The aim is to support a strategic approach in the new council and partners to address the health of our population.

Committee Members are asked to note the Director for Public Health’s Annual Report.
