Mental health on the agenda for Telford and Wrekin's Health & Wellbeing board
Members of Telford and Wrekin's Health & Wellbeing Board will meet on 29 September to discuss improving local health and wellbeing.
On the agenda will be an update on local mental health services, the Better Care Fund and preparations for winter and the increased pressure it brings.
The Health & Wellbeing Board is a partnership between local organisations and its members, including Telford & Wrekin Council, local NHS organisations and voluntary groups.
They meet to work together on health and social care issues, tackle health inequality, and improve public health.
Cllr Angela McClements (Labour), Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board, said:
“We know our residents face concerns about the upcoming winter and the ongoing cost of living crisis.
“Improving local mental health services and preparing for winter is going to be our focus for the Health and Wellbeing Board at this time.
“It's crucial for us to challenge and support our local NHS to improve local services for residents.
"I want residents to know that we are on your side, tell your issues and experiences with local health services and we will raise them at these board meetings, email: Democratic.Services@telford.gov.uk.
"We want to raise concerns with the people running the NHS to make local healthcare and wellbeing better.”
