There is still time to have your say on what ‘Being Well’ means to you.

Over 1,000 people in Worcestershire have taken part in our Being Well survey so far.

There is still time to have your say on the future of health and wellbeing in the county, the survey is open until 2 May.

Your views will help build up a picture of what wellbeing means to people of all ages from across all areas of Worcestershire, and how we can work together to improve it.  

By completing the survey, you can help shape the future of health and wellbeing in Worcestershire by sharing:

  • Your thoughts and feelings on mental health and wellbeing
  • How COVID-19 has impacted on your mental health and wellbeing
  • Your views on the proposed Being Well Strategy.

Your replies will help the Health and Wellbeing Board set priorities for the next 10 years.

Councillor Karen May, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing and Chair of Worcestershire Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “I would like to thank Worcestershire residents who have shared their views with our health and wellbeing consultation. Developing an effective strategy is only possible with your views, so I am delighted that so many of our community have taken the time to complete our survey.

“If you are yet to complete it, I encourage anyone who lives or works in Worcestershire to take this opportunity so have their say. This is your opportunity to be at the heart of our Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the next ten years.

"The impacts of the pandemic are being felt far and wide and by taking part people will be able to contribute to the future health and wellbeing of everyone in Worcestershire.

“We want everyone across the county to be able to live healthier, longer lives, especially those with the greatest health needs."
