The 'our approach' page provides details of the Northumberland health and wellbeing board and how health and care needs in Northumberland are addressed.
The health and wellbeing vision for Northumberland is to create a culture that allows the aspirations of residents and communities to be fulfilled. Through a number of organisations working together the aim is to make a real difference to improving the health and wellbeing of local people.
There are a number of health and social care organisations committed to making this work, some of which are detailed below.
Health & wellbeing board
