Merton Health and Wellbeing Board

Health and wellbeing boards were established under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to act as a forum in which key leaders from the health and care system could work together to improve the health and wellbeing of their local population, to promote integrated health and social care services and to increase the focus on prevention. Merton's Health and Wellbeing Board brings together councillors, health professionals, voluntary organisations and GPs, and is chaired by the Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care.

Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2015-2018: Merton - the place for a good life

Health and Wellbeing logo

Our Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2015-18 allows us to take a broader view of health and to embed the role of all partners in tackling health inequalities. Merton – the Place for a Good Life – the 2015-18 strategy focuses on the main influences on health, starting early in life to ensure that children and young people develop the skills and healthy habits for a productive adulthood, when they have access to good work, to safe and connected communities and to high streets and green spaces that make the healthy option the easy choice. The overarching strategic document is underpinned by an annual delivery plan that sets out the actions that partners will take to deliver the strategy.
