Slough Joint Wellbeing Strategy

Slough Wellbeing Board has produced a refreshed Wellbeing Strategy for 2016-2020 which focuses on the areas it plans to make a significant difference to the health and wellbeing of the residents of Slough.

The Strategy was developed following a review of the 2013-2016 Strategy and after a renewal of the borough’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment in 2016.

It will be used to prioritise and underpin the work of Slough’s Wellbeing Board.


The Slough Wellbeing Board is leading on a number of campaigns to improve the health and wellbeing of Slough residents.

  • Be Realistic - this campaign encourages small positive changes in lifestyle, and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
  • Not Alone - an initiative to raise awareness about the importance of looking after your mental health.
  • ReachOut - this campaign is about tackling social isolation and loneliness.

Annual reports

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment

An important source of local information is the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) provides a detailed assessment of Slough’s pharmaceutical needs and services.

Annual public health report

One of the key roles of Public Health is to provide good quality information on the health needs of local people to assist local organisations in providing or commissioning services for local people.

Directors of Public Health are responsible for producing annual reports on the health of the local population which contain recommendations for improving health. In Slough, a themed approach has been taken.

Slough Better Care Fund (BCF)

Slough Wellbeing Board helps oversee the borough’s Better Care Fund (BCF). The BCF is a pooled budget between the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Slough Borough Council to support the integration of health and social care services, so people can manage their own health and wellbeing and live independently in their communities for as long as possible. It aims to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in society, placing them at the centre of their care and support with integrated health and social care support, resulting in improved experience and better quality of life.


Slough Wellbeing Board works hard to ensure the following protocols are relevant and are reviewed and updated regularly.
