New fellows sought to help improve population health in West Yorkshire

Posted on Updated on

West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership’s Improving Population Health Fellowship is back for a second year, and is looking for more fellows to help make a positive difference.

If you want to find out more, we are hosting two events on 8 and 23 November from 2pm to 3:30pm. Contact verity.phillips3@nhs.net and caroline.andrews16@nhs.net for an invitation.

You can also visit our website for more information.

The Improving Population Health Fellowship, which is part of West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (WY HCP) expands on the successful first year of the Health Equity Fellowship, launched in 2021. The Health Equity Fellowship saw 33 fellows from health and care sectors carry out projects aimed at tackling health inequalities, including projects targeting children’s health, mentoring people and self-managing diabetes.

We are now looking for a total of 70 fellows across four different areas of the Improving Population Health Fellowship:

  • Health Equity: 30 fellows
  • Adversity Trauma and Resilience: 30 fellows
  • Suicide Prevention: five fellows
  • Climate Change: five fellows

Dr Sohail Abbas, Deputy Medical Director, NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board and Chair of the Health Inequalities Network, for WY HCP said: “We are delighted to launch year two of our fellowship now even bigger than before. If you are passionate about making a real difference to our local communities this could be the programme for you. That might be about tackling health inequalities, addressing barriers that people affected by trauma can experience when accessing services, protecting our environment or helping to prevent suicide.”

Being a fellow involves working on a project relevant to your fellowship theme and delivering it in your workplace, or by joining a system-wide initiative across West Yorkshire. Fellows will need to dedicate a day each week to carry out the fellowship training (mainly delivered virtually) and the project work.

The Fellowship will run from March 2023 to March 2024. We welcome applications from all health and care sectors, including community and voluntary colleagues across West Yorkshire.

Robin Tuddenham, Place Lead for Calderdale and joint Chair of the Improving Population Health Programme Board said: “The fellowship is designed to attract applicants that are representative of the communities we serve. Last year we saw some fantastic projects being delivered and, in some cases, expanded to other areas helping to create more equitable health and care systems and reduce health inequalities. This year we look forward to welcoming 70 more fellows with new ideas, tactics and perspectives to pioneer change and meet our ambitions.”

Applications are open from 7 November and close on 9 December. To apply all you need to do is complete a statement of interest. The Fellowship is open to all primary, secondary, community and voluntary sector colleagues across West Yorkshire irrespective of current job role, grade or profession.

Aziz-ur Rehman, a Health Equity Fellow from year one, said: “This is the first time I have been valued for my overall knowledge around the wider health agenda and I felt totally comfortable with every aspect of the fellowship. It is certainly not there to trip you up but to nurture what you have and make it usef

Sometimes all you need is a cuppa and a chat.

Of course a little financial help never hurts!

Staying Well has been a supporting presence for many who have found themselves isolated.

We are delighted to announce that Staying Well is now in the position to offer  practical support as well in the form of the newly launched Community Fund.

This fund is open to application from starting and existing organisations, targeting loneliness and social isolation, particularly delivering services for COVID support.

Merry Christmas from the Friday Flyer Team!

Posted on Updated on

A Merry Christmas from us all!

What a fabulous year we had. Coming out of lockdowns, getting to grips with Covid, new variants to keep us on our toes… and still, hesitantly, slowly but surely events started again. It hasn’t been easy by any stretch. I hope that as we look back at the hardships we realise – we overcame them yet again.

We were super glad to receive events for Halloween, Bonfire and finally Christmas in its full glory!

We even joined in, following the 12 days of Christmas shopping window trail and found 7 images. Did you do better? Boast!

See our 12 Days of Christmas Shopping Window Trail success!

We hope you have a good Christmas, surrounded by your nearest and dearest.

If you find yourself alone on that day, or any other day, if you find that you need urgent help and support, please reach out to someone.

You may find the resources in the below publications useful:

We will be back with you in the New Year with updates starting on the first week of January and the Friday Flyer coming to your inbox on January the 7th.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Until then,

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
