Living Healthier Staying Well - Beyond the Pandemic


1. Living Healthier Staying Well - Beyond the Pandemic
Page 1 of 2

Living Healthier Staying Well  is the Health Board’s 10 year strategy outlining its priorities and objectives for health and wellbeing.  
The strategy was launched in 2018 but due to a number of influential impacts such as COVID -19 the Health Board wants to review and refresh the strategy’s core aims and focus.  

An important element of our strategy review and refresh is to hear the views of the public and wider stakeholders. This will allow us to explore what has changed, if anything since the strategy was produced, and provide an opportunity to fine tune our proposals.  

To help us understand what is important to you we'd be grateful if you could complete this  anonymous and confidential questionnaire.  Please ensure that when you complete the free text boxes, you do not enter any information which may potentially identify you or any other individual.  The deadline for completing the questionnaire is 27th October.  We will publish the findings on the Health Board website.

For further information about our strategy and key information please take a look at our Living Healthier Staying Well page on - BCUHB Website and Wakelet platform for accessible (read out loud) text information in other languages.

Other ways of giving us feedback include emailing us at or by telephoning us on 01745 586458
(Please leave a message and we will call you back so that you do not have to pay for the call)


1. Are you a Health Board employee? *


2. Our strategy has now been in place for several years.  Its core goals include:

• Improving physical, emotional and mental health and well-being for all
• Targeting our resources to people who have the greatest needs and reduce inequalities
• Supporting children to have the best start in life
• Working in partnership to support people – individuals, families, carers, communities – to achieve their own well-being
• Improving the safety and quality of all services
• Respecting people and their dignity
• Listening to people and learn from their experiences

Do you agree that these goals are still relevant?


3. Given the challenges that COVID-19 has brought about over the last year, are there any goals you think the Health Board should prioritise more than others?

Please indicate any goals you think are a priority


4. As part of our strategy refresh are there any other priorities that the Health Board should now include or change?


5. Have you had any experience of how these goals are being put into practice? e.g. more services closer to home, better hospital care, improved health and reduced health inequalities.


6. How effective do you think the Health Board has been in delivering improvements to the health and wellbeing of its residents?


7. Improving Health and Reducing Health Inequalities

The Health Board has committed to promoting well-being and reduce inequalities.  It will do this through supporting people to meet their own needs, step in early to stop problems getting worse and do more to help people make healthy life choices, like stopping smoking.  

Do you agree that this is still the right approach?


8. Primary and Community Services

The Health Board has committed to helping people to manage their own health and supporting carers.  We are doing this through offering and signposting to a wide range of advice, information and support.  

To ensure local services can meet people's needs in the right way and at the right time, do you agree that this is still the right approach to take?


9. Acute Services

Our three main hospitals are Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor; Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, Bodelwyddan; and Wrexham Maelor Hospital.  All three will play an important role in meeting the needs of the people of North Wales now and in the future. Each has a 24/7 emergency department and supporting services.

To ensure people are able to get support quicker for more serious needs do you agree that this is still the right approach to take?


10. What would it mean for you if you were asked to travel further to get treatment sooner or more specialised care?


11. Equality and Disadvantage
The promotion of equality and human rights is an underpinning principle in our approach. This includes addressing barriers to accessing services, making reasonable adjustments and working towards improved outcomes for all, including those who are socio-economically disadvantaged.

Do you agree that the Health Board is delivering on this commitment?


12. Please tell us anything else you feel is important for the Health Board to consider?
