Sutton Council pledges to overturn low rate of child immunisation
The council is attempting to tackle the borough’s healthcare problems with a new plan of action.
With child immunisation rates among the lowest in the country the council has promised to make it one of their priorities for 2014.
Other issues they plan to fight include obesity, alcohol related issues, mental health and teenage pregnancy.
All the key issues were presented during the Health and Wellbeing Board on yesterday with a programme of action.
Councillor Ruth Dombey, leader of Sutton Council and chairperson of the health and wellbeing board said: “The health and wellbeing of our residents is of the upmost importance to us.
"Since taking over responsibilities for public health we have been working to address the issues that prevent people leading long and healthy lives.
“I believe that by tackling areas like childhood immunisation, obesity and alcohol related issues, we give our residents a greater opportunity to live a happy, fulfilling life.”
