“We provide free health checks, including a joint initiative with the NHS whereby selected people get a free health MOT every five years to check their blood and screen for dementia. We also work closely with Smokefree South West who run a number of anti-smoking campaigns throughout the year, and our drug and alcohol services are also performing well. We also have a number of schemes operating in our priority neighbourhoods to help tackle any health inequalities. And we are just about to publish our first Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the district which sets out how we as a council will work with our partners in health and local communities to further improve health and wellbeing of everyone in the district over the next three years.

“However, we are not complacent, and we will continue to make improvements where we can. One of the things we will be doing in the coming year is to make further improvements to the local health check scheme.”
