Take the Halifax Railway Station consultation by January the 30th

Posted on

The consultation deadline for the proposed Designs for Halifax Railway Station has been extended to Sunday the 30th of January. Please complete the survey and share your views.

www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/hrs 

With over £30m of funding from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, we have the opportunity to transform Halifax Railway Station, improving the travel experience and providing a boost to the local economy.

The station is the sixth busiest in West Yorkshire and served nearly two million rail journeys each year before the pandemic. However, the current station has limited facilities and poor accessibility, which will only get worse if passenger numbers grow as we expect.

Following the feedback from the consultation we held at the beginning of the year, we’ve been able to adapt and further shape the plans for the station and now want to hear from you on these latest designs.

For those who are unable to access the internet, printed copies of the designs and surveys can be picked up from the following locations:

  • Halifax Railway Station ticket office
  • Halifax Central Library

Test & Trace service survey – we need your help

Posted on

The Test & Trace service aims to speak to people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and identify who they have come into contact with, so that they can isolate and stop the spread of Coronavirus.  In Calderdale, the national Test & Trace service is supported by a local service to help us reach as many people as possible.

We want to find out what you know about the Test & Trace service and how you feel about it. The results from the survey will help us improve the service so that it is effective and works for the people of Calderdale.

All responses will be completely anonymous so please answer each question honestly.  We greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.

Improving Access to Talking Therapies – Calderdale CCG survey open till 6th March

Posted on

Talking therapies help people manage anxiety and depression through self-guided help, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and counselling. It is about providing people in Calderdale with accessible and appropriate psychological support to help improve and maintain their mental wellbeing. There are currently two providers of talking therapies in Calderdale – Insight Healthcare and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT).

The CCG wants to review how talking therapies are delivered in Calderdale.  The engagement will look at what’s working and what opportunities there are to provide low level mental health interventions in different ways.

It wants to obtain feedback and ideas from people who have used talking therapies since June 2018 along with staff, referrers and people who feel talking therapies are not for them. This will support the CCG to shape talking therapies in the future.

We would like to know more about:

  • How you manage your mental wellbeing
  • What patient’s and staff’s experience are of the talking therapies
  • Exploring the use of digital technology to support managing your mental wellbeing

Your feedback will be used to inform and shape a service that meets the needs of local people.

Have your say the Bus Information Strategy 2019-24

Posted on Updated on

Still a chance to have your say!

The engagement will close on Sunday 25 August 2019.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority is looking at how to provide information about bus services in a way that best meets people’s requirements. We are asking for public feedback on our proposed Bus Information Strategy 2019-24.
Further information is available via www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/bus-information-strategy.

Although the demand for the traditional, printed sources of information is declining, we recognise that there are still a number of passengers who rely on them. We want feedback from people to understand their requirements.

Our updated Bus Information Strategy acknowledges this and sets out how we plan to provide information in the form people want and to increase awareness of the information sources that are available.

Please visit our online consultation and engagement hub for further information and let us know what you think via our online survey.

You can find out more about the engagement through our Your Voice portal at www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/bus-information-strategy or if you would prefer printed information please email yourvoice@westyorks-ca.gov.uk or call Metroline on 0113 245 7676.

We will be assessing all the feedback received and will incorporate these views into a finalised Bus Information Strategy which will be presented to the Combined Authority Transport Committee meeting in November.
