Abstract Background: In March 2013, the Department of Health published Living Well for Longer: A call to action to reduce avoidable premature mortality. This paper highlighted key messages and actions needed to reduce avoidable mortality. Drawing from a bulletin produced annually by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Walsall is producing a similar report in order to look in more detail at the types of avoidable deaths that are prominent locally.Process: Walsall Public Health are working collaboratively with Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in developing a strategy to reduce avoidable mortality in the borough - 'Living Longer in Walsall'. The strategy is drawing upon national policy to help steer work and plans and incorporating the expertise already present within Local Authority - the wider determinants of health such as housing and road safety. Alongside and feeding into the strategy is the production of an avoidable mortality report for Walsall. This uses the ONS definition of avoidable mortality, and examines which conditions are more prolific, whether increased deprivation has an impact, as well as looking at differences between genders and trends over time. Impact: Both the strategy and the report are currently nearing completion. Feedback to date has been positive and it is proposed that the two documents, once finalised, will be launched at a workshop event during the summer to decipher how best to make improvements in Walsall. This piece of work will allow local partners to have a plan for understanding and reducing inequalities in life expectancy.
