We will work with healthcare professionals and organisations, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally for Better Health and Wellbeing for and with the South Asian/BME Communities.

VISION STATEMENT

  • We aim to achieve greater health and wellbeing equality for the South Asian communities with a particular focus on tackling our priority health and wellbeing outcomes.
  • We will work in partnership to maximise the assets and resources that we have in the Borough to achieve the best possible outcomes for BME communities.
  • The BME/South Asian community will have high aspirations for their own health and wellbeing outcomes and will feel in control, empowered and able to manage their own conditions
  • We will enable people from the BME/South Asian community to seek intervention and to access services by working collaboratively with our partners.
  • We will work to influence the strategies and delivery of health and wellbeing services with service providers.

HOW WE WILL ACHIEVE THE VISION

Current changes within traditional supplies of NHS and Council services means that these institutions may no longer be able to provide the current level of services and will have to look at alternative, local, quality and value for money alternatives. BME Health and Wellbeing will work the NHS and local Councils to provide preventative solutions to deliver the health and wellbeing agenda.
