Public health partners across the area have asked the voluntary sector and the public to identify priorities for a new Health and Wellbeing strategy, to improve the health of our communities.
The top priority identified across all areas is reducing the differences in health between different groups of people. Join us to discuss what this means to you, your members and communities and how a difference could be made. The agenda includes:
Dr Sarah Rayfield – Acting Consultant in Public Health for West Berkshire Council
Sarah has led the development of the strategy and will share the background and engagement.
