Developing Sefton's Health & Wellbeing Strategy 2020-2025

Date exercise ended - Monday, September 9, 2019

We are supporting Sefton Council ’s consultation that asks for your views to help develop plans for health and social care in the borough for the next 5 years.

Your feedback about what matters most to you about being healthy and happy will help make sure that services and opportunities available to support people in Sefton will help them to have the best life they can.


What is the Sefton Strategic Needs Assessment?

The Sefton Strategic Needs Assessment is a report about the needs of people that live in Sefton.

To get a good picture local councils and health services have to work together to find out what local people need to stay healthy and happy.

Sefton Council, the NHS – including NHS South Sefton CCG and others are working together to talk to people about what they need and how they can use money better to make this happen.


Why do we need a Strategic Needs Assessment?

A Strategic Needs Assessment collects information about the needs of everyone who lives in Sefton.

The information in it helps plan services for now and the future. This includes health services and support services from the Council.  It is used to help decide what services the Council and health services should pay for.

It helps make decisions on how to provide good services to meet the needs of all adults and children in Sefton.

It will help to make sure that the right services are available and that they are put in the right places for people to go to.

We know a lot of information, but we need to update this as the information changes every year.


What is Sefton Health and Wellbeing Strategy?

The information from the Strategic Needs Assessment, as well as what you tell us is important to you, is used to make a plan called the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

This tells you what the council and local  health services are planning to do to make sure that everyone in Sefton can stay healthy and well and what they will do for those who need support to stay well.

Sefton Council needs to update this plan, so that it includes what the Strategic Needs Assessment is telling them now.

The plan is split into different parts:

  • Start Well and Grow Well (Children and Young People)
  • Living and Working Well
  • Age Well (Older People)
  • Things that affect everybody
