Health and Wellbeing in Southend-on-Sea

Following the Health and Social Care Act 2012, Southend-on-Sea has a Health and Wellbeing Board which is made up of local statutory organisations and health related partners who are working in partnership to improve health and wellbeing for Southend's residents. The ambition is that everyone living in Southend-on-Sea has the best possible opportunity to live long, fulfilling, healthy lives.

We want:

  • Our children to have the best start in life
  • To encourage and support local people to make healthier choices
  • People to have control over their lives as independently as possible
  • To enable our older population to lead fulfilling lives as citizens

Southend's Health and Wellbeing Board is made up of representatives from:

  • Southend-on-Sea Borough Council
  • NHS Southend Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
  • Southend Healthwatch
  • Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT)
  • Southend Association of Voluntary Services (SAVS)
  • Pre-School Learning Alliance

For further information about Health and Wellbeing Boards and CCGs and to see Southend's Health and Wellbeing Strategy, please see related downloads.
