The borough enjoys excellent transport links, particularly to London and this will be further enhanced once the Elizabeth Line opens later this year.
Health data shows that the population of the borough is healthier than average, but health inequalities persist between communities and continue to be an area of focus for public health work.
The Royal Borough’s public health team sits in Strategy and Commissioning, working across the whole organisation to embed public health actions. Public Health services, such as 0-19’s and substance misuse are commissioned locally with sexual health services commissioned across a three-borough footprint with Bracknell Forest and Slough colleagues.
The Health & Wellbeing Board is thriving and committed to delivering its comprehensive Joint Health & Wellbeing Strategy with priorities built around three themes:
- Supporting a healthy population
- Prevention and Early Intervention
- Enabling residents to maximise their capabilities and life chances.
