Nottingham City’s Health and Wellbeing Board wants to hear your views on how to make Nottingham City a happier and healthier place in which to live, as planning gets under way to develop the next Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
Citizens’ views and opinions on improving health will enable the Board to understand which health and wellbeing issues are important to local people and this in turn will help to shape the next Strategy.
To give people an opportunity to have their say, three citizen engagement events have been arranged.
- Tuesday 3 November, 1pm – 3pm at Clifton Cornerstone
- Wednesday 4 November, 4:45pm – 6:45pm at the Council House Ballroom
- Monday 9 November, 5:15pm – 7:15pm at Bulwell Riverside.
It is well known that several important factors affect citizens’ health and wellbeing and some of these are:
- Education and available employment opportunities
- Where people live and the quality of the housing they live in
- Ability to enjoy green spaces like parks and get to leisure centres
- Lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, diet and physical exercise
- Environmental considerations like air pollution.
Cllr Alex Norris, chair of Nottingham City’s Health and wellbeing Board said:
“It’s really important that citizens take this opportunity to let us know what is most important to them regarding their health and wellbeing and all of the factors that have an impact on this. We want to hear from people and their views will help us develop the Strategy for the next four years.”
