Glasgow City Health Improvement Annual Report 2019/20 Now Available
The Annual Report for Glasgow City Health Improvement is now available. This report provides an insight into the progress made by Health Improvement to improve health and reduce health inequalities in 2019/20. Progress is framed in relation to the three Strategic Direction headers of: Building Mental Well-being and Resilience, Building Structurally and Socially Resilient Communities and Creating a Culture for Health in the City. The report highlights the way in which teams work across population, people and place to reach those who need support.
Integral to the work of Health Improvement is partnership working. Currently Health Improvement supports over 300 partnerships in the city, comprising of colleagues within NHSGGC and the HSCP as well as third sector, public sector and communities themselves.
Key innovations have taken place across this year and many services have been adapted and supported to respond to COVID-19.
Fiona Moss, Head of Health Improvement and Equality said: “This report captures the broad range of our business – with others in the HSCP, partners and communities and gives us much to be proud of. COVID-19 has fundamentally affected what we have been able to do this year and has required us to work innovatively and responsively to meet the needs of local communities. The Health Improvement staff that have remained with us during this period, have worked exceptionally hard to adapt and sustain as many of these programmes as possible.”
