Our aim

To add life to years and years to life, focusing on the factors underpinning wellbeing, while levelling up differences in the health of different groups in the county.

Who are we and what do we do?

The Health Improvement Board focuses on effective partnership working across Oxfordshire to meet peoples’ health and social care needs. It aims to:

Priorities for health improvement for 2016/17

  • Preventing early death and improving quality of life in later years.
  • Preventing chronic disease through tackling obesity.
  • 'Tackling the broader determinants of health through better housing and preventing homelessness
  • Preventing infectious disease through immunisation.

The Health Improvement Board will deliver these priorities by:

  • bringing a coordinated and coherent approach to influencing a broad range of determinants of health to bring about health improvement
  • working together to recommend priority areas to improve health in order to make a real and measurable difference to outcomes
  • recommending actions and responsibilities to make that improvement a reality.
  • holding each other to account for making the agreed change and for reporting progress.
