Do you have a passion for Public Health and improving health & wellbeing
Is reducing health inequalities high on your priority list?
If this is you - please read on.
Public Health Wales are hosting a range of listening events across Wales, as we are keen to hear from you about how we can all work together to improve health and wellbeing and tackle health inequalities.
For the vast majority of us, Wales is a great place to live. Most of us are fit and healthy and generally the quality of life here is good.
However, like everywhere, the picture in Wales is not perfect. The health and wellbeing of some of our communities is not improving at the same rate as others and we need to work together to improve the quality of life for everyone in the country.
Every year, too many people suffer from avoidable ill-health or die earlier than they should. These inequalities need to be tackled to make life better for local people and local communities.
We all have to take responsibility for our own health and supporting others – and to work together to build vibrant healthy communities where people feel included. This won’t be easy – it will take time. However, this means it is more important than ever that we focus on prevention and keeping people healthy – we need to make sure that services for improving health are the right ones and that they are efficient and joined up with all of the right partners.
We want to hear from a wide range of organisations who all contribute to improving health and wellbeing, prevention services and reducing inequalities. Public Health Wales are working with Welsh Government to develop a Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) which will sit alongside the other Outcomes Frameworks, which are already published by the Welsh Government. The new Framework is being set within the context of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act – so it will join up with other areas of work.
The development of a PHOF for Wales will help us to understand how great an impact public health and associated policies and programmes are having on the health of the population. Contained within it will be a set of health indicators within a dataset. It will help to identify where further improvement is needed and where we all will need to prioritise in the short, medium and long term.
Working in partnership, we want to develop a framework that people understand, buy into and can see a purpose in. It is therefore important for it to be developed with stakeholders from across all relevant sectors.
Public Health Wales are starting a round of listening events which will support the shaping and development of the PHOF that is co-produced by residents, organisations and other key stakeholders. By putting partners and residents at the centre of the process, the outcomes and indicators will not only be supported by a sound evidence base, but will be driven by local experience and opinion. This approach is a reflection that public health outcomes cannot be solved by a single person or organisation. They require co-operative action and responsibility across all parts of the system - including personal action by individuals - and closer partnership working with shared priorities across multiple organisations.
There are seven events – one in each Local Health Board area. The day is split into two – with an afternoon session (14.00 to 16.00 hours) comprising invited organisations, which will require registration and a separate evening ‘drop in’ session (17.00 to 20.00 hours) which is open to everyone especially local residents and communities.
The events are
Tuesday 25 August - Neath Port Talbot Community and Voluntary Service, 17-19 Alfred Street, Neath SA11 1EF
Friday 4 September - Pontypridd YMCA, YMCA Buildings, Taff St, Pontypridd, RCT, CF37 4TS
Monday 7 September - Community Council Meeting Room, Roe Plas Meadows, St Asaph, LL17 0RD

If you feel you could contribute to developing the Framework then please resister for an afternoon session using the on-line booking form at the following link:
Please indicate the date and locality event you wish to attend. There are 40 spaces at each afternoon session.
Maggie Grayson can assist with your booking and any enquiries you may have about the event on 01267 225019 or [email protected]
We hope to see you at one of our events as we value your input to shape a Public Health Outcomes Framework, but if you cannot attend, please don’t worry – there will be further opportunities to comment on the Framework once it has been drafted, or you are welcome to ‘drop in’ to the evening sessions at the venues between 5pm and 8pm.
