East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s public health and leisure services have won an award in the public health category at the LGC Awards for the partnership work they do in order to improve people’s lives.
Winning the prestigious award in this category means the teams helped protect and improve the health of their local communities, developing evidence-based solutions to reduce health inequalities, lessen premature deaths and improve health and wellbeing.
The award is given to the council that is making the most of their role in public health.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s public health team has transformed the way health and wellbeing is being improved within the East Riding by maximising customer satisfaction whilst doing more with less.
The public health thinking and narratives regarding prevention, evidence based interventions, programme budgeting and developing community assets are now at the very heart of local public service planning.
East Riding public health has built a national reputation for creating dynamic partnerships that deliver real improvements and savings. These successful partnership focus on the personalisation of services in the context of local place and community assets.
The lifestyle change partnership between East Riding CCG, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s leisure services, East Riding public health, local GPs and Hull University continues to produce ground-breaking lifestyle change programmes such as the ‘Health Plus’ scheme.
These programmes use a unique customer centric process that continues to improve lives whilst making real reductions to the net cost of both council and NHS services.
Results of this work include:
John Skidmore, director of adults, health and customer services, said: “I am delighted that our leisure and public health teams won the public health award at the LGC Awards this week.

“The award recognises the work we do in helping people turn around their lives by improving their mental and physical health, as well as building their confidence.
“Very well done to all the staff involved.”
