Prioritising Health

The health of residents in Hull should be one of the Council’s top priorities. In particular, we need to make sure that all children are given the very best start in life.

This is why public health funding is so important. From support for doula and breastfeeding services, to smoking cessation, nutrition and oral health – everyone in Hull should have access to services to help them build healthy habits and make healthy choices.

Along with our partners in the health sector, we will also work to encourage residents to lead active lives. Investment into our parks, and walking and cycling will help people to enjoy the city in a more active way, which can have great benefits for physical and mental health.
