Public Health Strategic Framework 2016-2020

We will help the people of Norfolk live in healthy places; promote healthy lifestyles; prevent ill-health; and reduce health inequalities.

Promote health living and healthy places

  • Working with district councils to address the wider issues that affect health (e.g. housing) and to deliver joint programmes that make a positive impact on health
  • Rolling out a workplace health offer to reduce sickness absence and improve productivity
  • Delivering health improvement and prevention services, including addressing obesity and encouraging more people from deprived areas to have an NHS Health Check
  • Continuing to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on Norfolk’s roads

Protect communities and individuals from harm

  • Redesigning drug and alcohol services to focus on recovery and delivery in the community

  • Taking a multi-agency approach on issues such mental health, domestic abuse and substance misuse
  • Assuring local strategies for emergency planning, protection and resilience
  • Halving the number of people unknowingly infected with HIV
  • Reducing the transmission of infections in care homes

Provide services that meet community needs
