Taking part with campaigns
Each campaign has webpage containing more information and resources to download. The leaflets and posters on these pages are produced by reliable health information sources and are suitable to distribute to your service users and patients where appropriate.
We also have physical campaign display packs available for each campaign. The link to request a display pack is available on the corresponding webpage. Packs are for collection from the Library and Health Promotion Resources at Lynfield Mount Hospital. All GPs in the Bradford and Airedale CCGs automatically receive a display packs in the internal post.
Our campaigns are collaborative, and we welcome any local organisation, whether NHS, public sector, voluntary or private, to get on board and spread the campaign message. These campaigns aim to coordinate public health efforts across the district, allowing many different partner organisations to work together, ensuring that all people in Bradford and Airedale have the key health messages needed to enable them to live to their fullest potential.
