Wokingham residents' views wanted to help shape a 5 year NHS health and care services plan

Health and care partners in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB) are asking for Wokingham Borough residents to share their views for its NHS Joint Forward Plan.

The Joint Forward Plan outlines how health and care services will be delivered to people living in BOB over the next five years. The plan is developed by the BOB Intergrated Care Board (BOB ICB) and NHS provider Trusts, working closely with local authority colleagues.

Learn more about BOB ICB in our article here.

The plan also explains how the ICB will deliver the ambitions set out in BOB Integrated Care Strategy and includes operational plans for 2023 and 2024.

The ICB has been working closely with stakeholders over the past few months to understand how to deliver health and care services which best meet the population’s needs, and now needs Reading locals' feedback on five key areas of the the plan:

  1. Promoting and Protecting Health – supporting people to keep healthy and well, with focus on prevention, inequalities and vaccination and immunisation.

  2. Start Well – helping children achieve the best start in life, focusing on maternity services, children’s mental health, children’s learning disabilities, children’s neurodiversity and children with long-term health conditions.

  3. Live Well - supporting people and communities to live happy and healthy lives, with particular interest in long-term conditions, adult mental health, adult neurodiversity and cancer services.

  4. Age Well – enabling people to stay healthy and live independently for longer, looking at frailty and community multidisciplinary teams.

  5. Quality and Access – creating access to the right care in the best place, reviewing primary care, urgent and emergency care, planned care and palliative and end of life care.
