Wyre Forest Health Structure and Strategy

Since 2011, the services responsible for delivering health in Worcestershire have been through a period of profound structural change. This included the move of Public Health service to Worcestershire County Council in April 2013 and the establishment of Clinical Commissioning Groups.

The Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of local GPs and senior health professionals who work together to procure hospital, community and mental health services for the local population.

The Worcestershire Health and Wellbeing Board oversees local health commissioning and leads on the strategic planning and co-ordination of local health services. The Board includes representatives from Public Health and Wyre Forest CCG. The Board has developed the Worcestershire Joint Health& Well-being Strategy 2013-16.

Within Wyre Forest, the Strategic Health and Inequalities Partnership (SHIP) is supported by the Health and Wellbeing Delivery Partnership (HWDP), which includes representatives from Public Health, WFDC, Community Housing Group, Vestia and Disability Action Wyre Forest amongst others. Please contact the Wyre Forest Health Improvement Co-ordinator to find out more about these groups.

Priorities in Wyre Forest include older people and management of long term conditions, mental health and well-being, obesity and alcohol. The annual Wyre Forest Health Action Plan sets out activities happening locally to address these issues.
