Healthy Adults

This page outlines the work we are doing at the healthy adults board to support people to stay healthy in Leeds

Our aim in Leeds is to support people to make healthier lifestyle choices and to treat avoidable illness early on. This will help people to live longer, healthier lives, and to reduce the demand and delays in treatment and care.

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (WHO, 2022)

This new focus on prevention is an exciting and significant challenge, building on our existing prevention work. Our work will focus on helping people to stay healthy by addressing things like tobacco addiction, obesity, and social problems like loneliness and isolation – particularly in areas with the highest rates of ill health.

We describe this group of people, or population, as ‘healthy adults’. Healthy adults are defined as ‘all people aged 18 and above not appearing in the end of life, frailty or long-term conditions populations’. Although identified as ‘healthy’, people in this population may potentially be living with an undiagnosed condition or may have health behaviours that are seen as putting them at high risk of illness or disease.

The Healthy Adults Population Board brings together partners from across Leeds so that we can tailor better health and social care services and make better use of public resources.

Outcomes for the healthy adults population board

The ambition of our healthy adults work in Leeds is to help support adults to remain healthy. Our ambitions are that:

  1. People in Leeds are mentally healthy
  2. People in Leeds have good physical health
  3. Leeds is a happy place to live

These are our identified outcomes. By setting these clear goals, that are focused on how services impact the people they serve, the board is able to better track whether we’re really doing the right thing for people in Leeds.

Insight review

We have worked with our partners to review the feedback (insight) we already have about people’s experience of maintaining their health and well-being. This will help us understand what we already know. You can read the report below:
