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.

The Health and Wellbeing Board operates alongside Trafford's Local Care Alliance (LCA) which is an integral part of our new operating model for commissioning in Trafford. It is an alliance of provider organisations, community health, social care, primary care including general practice, mental health and VCSE sector organisations which are committed to working in partnership, delivering a place-based approach to strategic commissioning and outcome focused models of care in Trafford, so that we can deliver better health and social care outcomes for the people of Trafford. 

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 focussed 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 three 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)

The membership of the sub boards is made up of statutory and voluntary organisations. The boards welcome representatives from voluntary and community groups to join; please contact Sarah Grant on the details below if you would like to attend.

The meeting dates for the sub boards are listed below:

  • Start Well Board - Thursday 27th June, Thursday 15th August, Wednesday 9th October
  • Live Well Board - Friday 26th July, Tuesday 1st October
  • Age Well Board - Monday 17th June
