Public health green paper consultation

This Green Paper sets out the proposed Public Health priorities for the next four years. The priorities have been designed to support the shared ambition across the council and its partners in the NHS, Police, Fire Service, Voluntary and Community Sector to improve the health and wellbeing of local people and support them to achieve their potential in life.

The four priorities align with the council vision of Birmingham as:

  • an aspirational city to grow up in
  • an entrepreneurial city to live, work and invest in
  • a fulfilling city to age well in
  • a great city to live in.

We also recognise in the Green Paper the shared objective that Birmingham citizens gain the maximum benefit from hosting the Commonwealth Games.

The consultation on the proposed Birmingham Public Health Green Paper has now closed, but you can still read our proposed priorities.

Why we were consulting

We asked the people of Birmingham, strategic partners, and key agencies (including current service providers) to let us know their views on the public health priorities for the city set out in the Birmingham Public Health Green Paper.

Your feedback will help us reflect on whether these are the right priorities and to help shape our thinking as we look to develop a framework for action for the future.
