Sidmouth residents urged to take part in health probe

PUBLISHED: 12:21 20 August 2012

RESIDENTS and organisations are being asked for their views on health, social care and wellbeing priorities - which will shape the way services are delivered in the future.

Devon’s Health and Wellbeing Board is carrying out a consultation on what health and wellbeing issues are important to Devon’s population, as well as looking at evidence and assessments of people’s needs.

By looking at individual towns and communities, a number of issues have emerged, says the board.

These range from poverty and social isolation to alcohol and lifestyle choices such as healthy eating.

Councillor Andrea Davis, the chairman of the board, said: “We want to know what is important to people.

“This consultation only takes a few minutes to answer, so I’d encourage everyone who wants to have a say in their future health care to take part.”
