Earlier in the week I had the pleasure of attending a Stakeholder Engagement Event, at Oakengates Theatre where we were given an update on the progress in Telford and Wrekin regarding the implementation of the Health and Wellbeing Board and the launch of their strategy.

The agreed priorities for the Health and Wellbeing Board in Telford and Wrekin are:

1) Reduce weight in children and adults

2) Reduce teenage pregnancy

3) Improve emotional health and wellbeing

4) Support people with autism

5) Reduce the number of people who smoke and misuse alcohol and drugs

6) Support people to live independently

7) Improve life expectancy and reduce inequalities

8) Support people with dementia

9) Ensure people have a positive experience of health and care services

10) Improve carers' health and wellbeing
