West Yorkshire recognised for providing welcoming and accessible healthcare services
West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (WY HCP), (an integrated care system), was delighted to celebrate becoming the first Partnership of Sanctuary in the country. This is for going above and beyond to welcome people seeking sanctuary into West Yorkshire.
To celebrate the occasion and find out more about what it means to be a Partnership of Sanctuary, dignitaries and other special guests including council leaders, people with lived experience and representatives from community organisations gathered at an event at The Art House in Wakefield on 16 March 2023.
The City of Sanctuary made the award following an assessment of the Partnership’s activities to provide safe, welcoming and accessible healthcare for refugees and asylum seekers.
