As health and social care services face significant challenges, with increased demand and financial pressures, Redbridge Council is seeking residents' views on the future of these vital services.

The Health and Wellbeing Strategy will set out how the needs of the population will be met over the next four years.

Currently, Redbridge is the 13th largest borough in London, with a rapidly growing population.

In 2017 it is estimated that 306,000 people live in the borough and it is expected to grow to 325,000 residents by 2021.

This includes significant increases in the numbers of children and young people and people aged over 65 years, many of whom require support from health and social care services.

As part of the consultation, which ends on June 12, residents can examine the draft strategy and suggest any improvements or amendments, by clicking here.
