East Dunbartonshire Joint Health Improvement Plan 2018-2021

East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) are pleased to share the Joint Health Improvement Plan:

The East Dunbartonshire J-HIP 2018 – 2021 has been informed through engagement with residents, service users, patients, carers, local communities and partners in East Dunbartonshire Council, NHS GGC and the third sector.

The Draft Plan identifies 5 areas for action in East Dunbartonshire that can develop opportunities for individuals, families and communities to be involved in improving their own health and wellbeing:

  • Tobacco prevention, cessation and control
  • Obesity and physical activity
  • Alcohol drug intervention and awareness
  • Positive mental health and capacity building, and
  • Healthy environment

The J-HIP will be led, supported and monitored by the HSCP Health Improvement Team on behalf of the Community Planning Partners who are now seeking your views during this formal consultation stage so they can reflect the views of residents, stakeholder organisations and local communities.

The consultation period is open until the 13 April 2018.
