When we talk about healthy place, we are talking about the physical, social, cultural and economic factors that help us lead healthy lives by shaping the places we live, learn, work and play. These factors also shape the choices we make, for example the food we eat or how we choose to travel from one place to another. Our Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2019 – 2024: A healthy place for healthy lives has a vision of "working together to make Merton a heathy place by creating the physical and social conditions for all people to thrive, and to complement the provision of holistic health and care services". As well as the full Strategy there is a Strategy Summary which was produced with the input of our Young Inspectors.

​Overall responsibility for this strategy lies with the Health and Wellbeing Board.
