Members of the public are invited to attend the next meeting of the West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board where they will be able to put their questions directly to the county’s health leaders.
There will be an update at the meeting from the Public Health Specialty Registrar who will present a report to the Board on cost of living pressures, and potential impacts on our local population’s health.
The Health and Wellbeing Board will meet on Thursday, 3 November from 10.30am in the Council Chamber at County Hall, in Chichester.
The Board works to improve the health and wellbeing of West Sussex residents. Since April this year, it has met in-person, following nearly two years of virtual meetings.
The agenda includes a public forum where residents of West Sussex can submit their questions to the Board prior to the meeting and be there to hear the response from members. Those who are unable to attend, or who don’t wish to, can still submit questions to the Board and receive a response at a later date.
Questions for the Board can be submitted in advance by emailing Democratic Services Officer Erica Keegan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also on the agenda for the next meeting is a formal quarterly update from the Children First Board, which is a sub-group of the Health and Wellbeing Board, and an update from Director of Public Health, Alison Challenger, on current public health matters.
The full meeting agenda is available on the county council’s website.
