Annex A: National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes

The National Health and Wellbeing Outcomes are high-level statements of what health and social care partners are attempting to achieve through integration and ultimately through the pursuit of quality improvement across health and social care.

By working with individuals and local communities, Integration Authorities will support people to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Outcome 1: People are able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing and live in good health for longer.
  • Outcome 2: People, including those with disabilities or long term conditions, or who are frail, are able to live, as far as reasonably practicable, independently and at home or in a homely setting in their community.
  • Outcome 3. People who use health and social care services have positive experiences of those services, and have their dignity respected.
  • Outcome 4. Health and social care services are centred on helping to maintain or improve the quality of life of people who use those services.
  • Outcome 5. Health and social care services contribute to reducing health inequalities.
  • Outcome 6. People who provide unpaid care are supported to look after their own health and wellbeing, including to reduce any negative impact of their caring role on their own health and well-being.
  • Outcome 7. People using health and social care services are safe from harm
  • Outcome 8. People who work in health and social care services feel engaged with the work they do and are supported to continuously improve the information, support, care and treatment they provide.
  • Outcome 9. Resources are used effectively and efficiently in the provision of health and social care services.
