National research shows that people need three things to be and remain healthy: confidence, control over their lives and social connections. Within North Yorkshire, the local VCSE sector enables people of all ages to access local opportunities and services which bolster the physical and mental health of individuals.
North Yorkshire has its own Health and Wellbeing Board where leaders from public and VCSE sectors work in partnership to develop robust joint health and wellbeing strategies. These strategies then inform the development, investment and delivery of new health and care services and projects.
At the local level GP services are delivered through doctor’s surgeries which are grouped together into Primary Care Networks which support communities across rural and urban areas.
The Primary Care Networks in turn are members of Local Health Partnerships where local organisations come together to develop and deliver plans which improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.
