West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership Board Public meeting December 6th
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 email@example.com 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.
The agenda, papers, and link to watch the meeting live can be accessed from Tuesday 29 November evening at: www.wypartnership.co.uk/meetings/partnershipboard/papers

West Yorkshire Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups public meeting May 3rd
The West Yorkshire Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will meet in public on Tuesday 3 May, 2022, 11am to 1pm. The Committee, which is part of the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (WY HCP), has a shared health programme of work that aims to further improve the health and wellbeing of the 2.4 million people living across the area.
The meeting will be held virtually via digital technology.
The Committee has delegated powers from individual CCGs (Bradford District and Craven; Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield) to make collective decisions around specific work programmes, for example mental health, planned care, urgent care, and cancer.
A key part of their work involves sharing expertise and working closely with local councils, hospitals, care providers and voluntary community and social enterprise organisations – ensuring services are fit for the future.
The meeting on Tuesday the 3 May 2022 will discuss the harmonisation of commissioning policies across West Yorkshire.
Committee meetings held in public are filmed live and offer members of the public an opportunity to ask questions about agenda items. As we are holding the meeting virtually via digital technology, we are taking a different approach to questions.
Members of the public are asked to email their questions to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on Monday 2 May 2022. They can also call 01924 317659 to submit questions.
We will then send members of the public a Microsoft Teams link to enable them to join the meeting for their question-and-answer item.
All questions submitted will be published on the Joint Committee webpage. The agenda and meeting papers can be accessed from Tuesday 26 April 2022 at:
