West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership’s Partnership Board (WY HCP) will meet in public on Tuesday 6 December 2022 at 2pm. The meeting will be held online using digital technology and chaired by Cllr Tim Swift, Leader of Calderdale Council and Chair of Calderdale Health and Wellbeing Board.
The Partnership Board further strengthens joint working arrangements between the NHS, councils, care providers, hospices, Healthwatch, the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. Together, the Partnership improves health and care of all people living across the area.
The Board is an important group for the Partnership, which covers Bradford District and Craven, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield District. It brings together elected members, executive and non-executives, and independent co-opted members in one decision making process. Its work aligns to the NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board.
Board members will receive an update from Rob Webster CBE, CEO Lead for the Partnership. There will also be reports on the work we are doing to tackle poverty, supporting people to leave hospital, and an update on the refresh of the WY HCP’s five-year strategy as well as progress made from the recommendations of the Partnership’s Race Review.
Working alongside communities, the Partnership Board aims to give people their best start in life with support to stay healthy and live longer. Many factors determine whether someone leads a long and healthy life, including good housing, access to green space, and building an inclusive economy that creates more good jobs, reduces health inequalities, and promotes opportunity for all. These important factors are at the heart of the Partnership Board.
The Board meets in public every three months and gives people the opportunity to ask questions and have their say. Members of the public will be able to ask a question at the start of the meeting via a video link. All questions submitted will receive a written response after the meeting and will be published on the Partnership’s website.
Members of the public are asked to email their questions to firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 5 December at 5pm – highlighting the question to be asked at the Board. People can also call 01924 317659 to submit questions. Members of the public who want to ask a question will then be sent a Microsoft Teams link to the meeting.
