Joint health and wellbeing strategy
'Seamless Health' - A joined up approach to improving health and wellbeing in Bracknell Forest Borough
Seamless Health is the name of the statutory Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy for Bracknell Forest. The strategy has been developed in partnership between the Council, Bracknell Forest and Ascot Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Healthwatch Bracknell Forest who all form part of the Health and Wellbeing Board.
The purpose of the strategy is to identify common goals across health and social care services and how health and social care services might work together or more closely to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.
The strategy is informed by the Bracknell Forest JSNA (Joint Strategic Needs Assessment) and is the means by which we assess the current and future health and wellbeing needs of people in Bracknell Forest. The principles behind the strategy are:
- a common sense approach – start small, think big, working together towards the same goals to achieve quicker results for more people. The strategy looks at opportunities for the NHS and the council to work together to get better, more cost effective results
- an integrated approach - Seamless Health can only be seamless if organisations work closely together to achieve these goals
- an asset-based approach, making more from the power of community by identifying ways in which people and organisations can contribute to the health and wellbeing goals of the local population
