Health and Wellbeing Board

Traffords Health and Wellbeing Board brings together elected Councillors, key commissioners, including representatives of Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group, the Director of Public Health, Children’s Services and Adult Social Services, a representative of HealthWatch and third sector representation.

The Health and Wellbeing Board connects Trafford into the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, and oversees three thematic partnerships:

The Board oversees the Health and Social Care Locality Plan which will help develop a place based, partnership approach to health and social care in Trafford, and will encompass all aspects of wellbeing such as work and skills, housing, physical activity, and crime and offending.

Trafford Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-19

The Trafford Health and Wellbeing Board is determined to increase the number of years people spend in good health. This is measured by Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE). The variation across the borough for this indicator is greater than for life expectancy, and we have a 16 year inequality between our most affluent and most deprived communities.

To improve HLE, we are focussing on preventing poor health and on promoting wellbeing. We must address 'wider determinants' of health such as housing, transport, employment and the environment we live in. The Health and Wellbeing Board is ffocussed on our residents' journeys through life, taking a life course approach that reflects the public health needs of that age group.

We have five overarching health and wellbeing priorities:

  • To reduce the impact of poor mental health
  • To reduce physical inactivity
  • To reduce the number of people who smoke or use tobacco
  • To reduce harms from alcohol
  • To improve cancer prevention and screening

To deliver these priorities in partnership, we have established four sub boards:

  • Start Well Board (maternity, children and young people)
  • Live Well Board (19-64 years, including lifestyle and health improvement)
  • Age Well Board (65 years plus, including the impacts of falls, frailty, dementia and end of life care)
  • Mental Health Partnership (delivery of the new Mental Health Strategy for Trafford)
