Our aim is to embed a population health approach to improving the health and wellbeing of the population of Walsall as well as reducing inequalities amongst our more vulnerable communities.

Working closely with our partners we gather data, intelligence and insight to help us build a better understanding of people’s health, the circumstances in which they live, their needs, and the type of care they receive.

This data is used alongside other sources of information such as from our citizens through conversations, surveys, focus groups or research evidence, to help us to understand current health and care needs as well as predict what will be needed in the future.

How we are improving population health:
