Have your say on Dorset priorities

Our Dorset Looking Forward

Your local NHS and councils are planning how to improve health and wellbeing in Dorset. This is being done in line with the NHS ‘Long-term Plan’ and continues from the five-year plans that have shaped services up until now.  This round of planning provides an opportunity to build on the work to date and think of more innovative ways to meet the needs of communities. 

It won’t just focus on health services, it will look at a variety of things that affect our health such as stopping smoking and doing more exercise, living in healthy communities and making the most of our natural environment. 

You are invited to share your views on the main priority areas for improvement being considered for Dorset.

The 6 priority areas:

  • Individuals
  • Communities
  • Living Well
  • Wellbeing
  • Workforce
  • Digital Innovation

How important is each priority to you and what do you think needs to be considered when thinking of each priority?

Please take part in this survey and share your views.  The closing date of the survey is 18 August 2019.
