Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust is working with other health, care and partner organisations, as part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership. The Partnership is working with local communities to identify the priorities for health and care in the region to 2021, so that everyone has the best possible outcomes for their health and wellbeing.
A draft plan outlines the Partnership’s ambitions to tackle the health and wellbeing gaps across the region to provide consistently high quality services within planned resources, to support people to live longer and healthier lives, no matter where they live. It is based on six ‘place-based’ or local plans including one for Bradford District and Craven.
Our Care Trust is one of 25 health and care organisations that is involved in the Partnership, along with key partners such as Healthwatch, to improve services across Bradford District and Craven, Calderdale, Harrogate and Rural District, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield.
We have an ageing population and people are living longer with complex health and care needs, and demand is increasing more than resource. Alongside this, people want services to be more co-ordinated and delivered locally, and better suited to meet their needs.
The draft Partnership plan is focusing on prevention, ensuring that services are more joined-up, preventing unnecessary hospital admissions and where possible, supporting more people to stay well at home.
The full plan, short summary and supporting materials are all available on the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership’s website along with Next Steps to Better Health and Care for Everyone that outlines progress so far.
There is also a short film about the plan and next steps.
