Health and Wellbeing
The Health and Wellbeing Partnership (formerly known as the City Health Partnership) brings local agencies together to jointly tackle Nottingham's health improvement priorities.
The Partnership is chaired by Mike Wilkins, Non Executive Director at NHS Nottingham City and includes representatives from NHS Nottingham City, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Police, Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, the voluntary sector and local businesses.
In particular the partnership is responsible for:

Aims of the Health and Wellbeing Partnership
The Partnership aims to reduce health inequalities in Nottingham - so that no one is disadvantaged by who they are or where they live.
One of the main priorities is to reduce heart disease, and the Partnership does this by working with local organisations to:
- promote physical activity
- provide healthy eating advice
- support people who want to stop smoking
A range of services are available which promote and deliver these messages and activities including Change of Heart Health Trainers, local people who support adults wishing to adopt healthier lifestyles, Ecoworks - a local community organisation that runs practical projects to benefit local people and the environment and New Leaf - the FREE NHS stop-smoking service for smokers who live or work in Nottingham, offering support and advice through one-to-one, drop in or telephone sessions with a personal advisor. To find out more about these services and other organisations the Health and Wellbeing Partnership works with, please download the leaflet below:

Decade of Better Health
The Decade of Better Health Programme has been developed by NHS Nottingham City and Nottingham City Council through One Nottingham's Health and Wellbeing Partnership.
The programme aims to make Nottingham a healthier and happier city over the next decade by tackling some of the city's biggest health challenges and has strong links with 'The Nottingham Plan to 2020' which outlines ambitious targets to make Nottingham healthier. To meet these targets, we need to engage with the city's population on a much greater scale and find more interactive ways to help people think about their own health, and make healthier lifestyle choices as a result. Visit www.decadeofbetterhealth.com for more information.
