Consultation has concluded

Thurrock Council is required by law to establish a Health and Wellbeing Board. The Health and Wellbeing Board includes representatives of different local organisations that are responsible for and involved in providing services and support to Thurrock residents that impact on their health and wellbeing.

The Health and Wellbeing Board is responsible for creating and overseeing Thurrock’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy, a statutory requirement. The Health and Wellbeing Strategy identifies priorities for reducing inequalities in health and wellbeing and improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Thurrock.

The second and current 5 Year Strategy was launched in July 2016 and has run for 5 years.

Refreshing and updating the Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Since the Strategy’s launch in 2016 there have been nationally driven changes made to local health structures and the creation of the Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership and further development of Integrated Care Systems, which impact on the way in which health services are planned and commissioned for the residents of Thurrock. Further work has also been done to understand the wider determinants of health and wellbeing in Thurrock and potential new priorities to incorporate into the new Strategy proposals.

The Health and Wellbeing Strategy is therefore being refreshed and this consultation exercise provides you with an opportunity to help shape and inform priorities upon which the new Strategy will focus over the next five years.

Proposals have been created for the new Health and Wellbeing Strategy upon which your views are encouraged and welcomed. To ensure that you can provide your views and feedback on proposals of interest to you the proposals have been split into the following areas:

  • Thurrock Health and Wellbeing Strategy’s focus on levelling the playing field
  • Areas of people’s lives that impact on their health and wellbeing – An overview of the proposed Domains for the refreshed Health and Wellbeing Strategy
  • Domains in Focus: The links below provide access to each of the six proposed domains in more detail by describing what we want to achieve and what this means in practice. It also sets out the priorities that have been identified and what we will do to achieve them.

You are not required to respond to every question in this survey and may wish to provide feedback on areas that are of specific interest to you.

    Do you really want our input because not for the first time, having taken a lot of care and time to compete this survey, my responses have been lost in the ether? It can hardly be right or fair that a residents voice and responses are disregarded either by design or by poor technology.

    is air pollution included in this strategy?

    london asked 3 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Air Pollution is specifically mentioned in Domain 5: Housing and the Environment. It is also referenced in Priority 5D of this domain. If you have any specific comments about air quality in relation to this strategy please use the domain 5 survey as an opportunity to have your say on this issue.

    I would like to take part but the format and wording is much too difficult for older people to take part

    Hi Joy,

    Thank you for your comments. I am pleased to advise we now have a number of shortened versions of the consultation questionnaire, one for each area of people’s lives. A copy of the shortened questionnaires can be requested by emailing AHH-BMT@thurrock.gov.uk.
