Public asked to contribute to North Yorkshire health report

North Yorkshire County Council

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 11:40am 13th June 2018. (Updated at 11:41am 13th June 2018)

North Yorkshire County Council is asking residents and partner organisations to share their views on what the county’s public health priorities should be for the next five years.

The consultation exercise is part of the development of the 2018 Director of Public Health for North Yorkshire’s annual report.

Dr Lincoln Sargeant, Director of Public Health for North Yorkshire, said:  

“It is five years since North Yorkshire County Council took over public health responsibilities from the NHS.

“This makes it a good time to look at the progress we have made so far across the county and look at where we want to be in 2025. My report this year will be a snapshot of the work we have done together to deliver public health strategies, initiatives, and high quality, cost-effective public health services. It will highlight areas where more progress is needed and an examination of what we need to achieve over the next seven years.

“We would like local residents and the organisations we work with to tell us what matters to them in terms of health and wellbeing so we can analyse the responses about priorities and feed them into our collective approach and vision for public health in North Yorkshire.”

County Councillor Caroline Dickinson, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Public Health, Prevention and Supported Housing, said:

“The 2018 Director of Public Health report builds on Dr Sargeant’s five previous annual reports.

“They examined the health needs of North Yorkshire (2013); working with communities (2014); growing up healthy in North Yorkshire (2015); the health and wellbeing of the working age population (2016);  and Healthy transitions: growing old in North Yorkshire (2017). This year’s report will outline what our future priorities should be for public health action in our county, so we are encouraging everyone to contribute their views to ensure our strategies and plans reflects what matters to them”.

The survey is on line at www.northyorks.gov.uk/dphar and will be open until midnight Friday, 15 June. Further information is available at nypartnerships.org.uk/dphreport2018.
