Have your say on how health services are delivered across West Yorkshire by Feb 20th
NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (NHS WY ICB) is asking people and communities to come forward and share their views on how health services should be delivered to them locally, and across West Yorkshire.
With the passing of the Health and Care Act 2022, there is a requirement for integrated care systems (like the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership) to develop an integrated health and social care strategy and for integrated care boards to develop a joint forward plan to deliver the NHS components.
Building on the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (WY HCP) Five-Year Strategy ‘Better health and wellbeing for everyone’ published in 2020, the Partnership has coproduced a refreshed draft strategy. The Partnership is now seeking people’s views on how its ambitions for the NHS will be achieved in a new joint forward plan for the area. The plan will be published by the 30 June 2023.
People can have their say by completing a short survey online at https://bit.ly/wyviews
or by contacting their local Healthwatch by Monday 20 February 2023 to answer a few questions. More information is available on the WY HCP website at wypartnership.co.uk/your-views

Have you considered reviewing your energy provider?
Have you thought about switching your energy provider, but not found the time to do it?
Ofgem and Calderdale Citizen’s Advice give really easy to follow support with Energy Best Deal and www.goenergyshopping.co.uk.
Come to one of our drop in sessions in March 2018 (see below for dates and venues), and we’ll help you find your options there and then, using an impartial tool.
You’ll need to bring this information with you :
- The name of your supplier and the tariff you are on
- How much energy you used in the last year
- How you currently pay for your energy
- Your postcode
This information is on your bill and annual statement from your energy supplier – ring us if you’re not sure how to find it.
If you are on a pre-payment meter, you may not save as much by switching , but it may still be worth your while coming to the drop in.
If you’re not sure whether the drop in is for you , or want to know more please contact Liz Broadley on 07852 173723 or email Liz.email@example.com
