Active and Healthy
We want Gateshead to have one of the healthiest communities in the country with the building blocks in place to support and encourage people to take up opportunities to improve their health and lifestyle.
Some of the things we were involved in during 2014-15 included:
- awarding contracts for drug and alcohol treatment and the integrated wellness model, as well as sexual health services.
- submitting Gateshead’s Better Care Fund Plan to Government in line with updated national guidance.
- Establishing a multi-agency partnership to oversee the 0-19 agenda, including preparing for the transfer of the 0-5 public health services to the Council.
