The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021-2024, Happier, Healthier Lives - a shared plan for Buckinghamshire was approved by the Board at the 18th February 2021 meeting.


The Board approved the approach of future meetings being themed against the 3 key priorities identified and agreed in the Strategy – Start Well, Live Well and Age Well.  It was also agreed to have a deep dive on Mental Health, for each of the priority areas (Start Well, Live Well, Age Well) as this was a cross cutting theme identified in the strategy and one of the areas known to have been hugely impacted by the pandemic.


The April meeting theme is Start Well and to provide assurance on progress being made against the high-level actions included in table 2 of the strategy, a detailed action plan has been co-developed with partners.


The action plan demonstrates how all partners of the Board are committed to delivering against the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
