Have your say on how health services are delivered across West Yorkshire

R.Webster & C.Elliott (landscape + smile)

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.

More information here

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 your say on Calderdale’s Cultural Strategy

Now is the last chance to have your say in shaping our ambition for Culture in Calderdale.

Our Cultural Strategy will set out a borough-wide commitment, investing in and supporting Culture and the role that it plays in supporting wider economic, social and environment strategies. It is also valuable for the borough and individual organisations in helping to attract external investment into Calderdale. This might be to improve specific cultural venues, deliver borough-wide and year long programmes such as a ‘Year of Culture’ in 2024 and developing Calderdale as a strong tourism destination.We are consulting on Calderdale’s proposed draft Cultural Strategy. We welcome your comments on the draft vision, priorities and themes outlined within the draft strategy to inform and drive investment.

Survey – Your Experiences of Health Care During Coronavirus

Along with Healthwatch Calderdale and local NHS organisations, Disability Partnership Calderdale would like to ask you for your help! Have you used any Health or Care services since lockdown began? Or have you visited someone, or helped someone who was attending a health or care setting? For example, a GP surgery, Hospital, Pharmacy or Care Setting?

If so, DPC would really appreciate it if you could spare ten minutes to tell them about it over the phone, so that they can feed your experiences back to the NHS. This can be done by either talking to you or texting you. DPC are currently working in partnership with Healthwatch Calderdale and local NHS organisations to understand the issues, whether positive or negative, that people may have experienced when accessing health and care services during lockdown.

If you would like to share your NHS experiences with DPC, please call or text on the number below to register your interest. One of the DPC workers will take your details and call / text you back at a time to suit you, to go through the ten- minute survey at your convenience.

your input on this matter is greatly appreciated and DPC look forward to hearing from you. Please call or text on 07716 122897

How can we make Calderdale more active? Have your say!

We know activity plays a huge part to promote good physical and mental health and wellbeing in people of all ages.

Last year IBM worked with the Council to identify how to encourage more active, healthy and longer lives in the borough. Their recommendations included working with local organisations and people to create even more activities, and giving residents more information about how healthy they currently are to inspire them to make healthy choices.

On the back of that partnership, a new physical activity strategy, Active Calderdale, has been developed that sets out a range of measures to help us become the most active borough in the north of England by 2021.

Now we urgently need your input to make sure the strategy is right. Join us on the journey to a more active Calderdale by giving your thoughts and feedback by Sunday 5 March.

Read the strategy and complete the survey to have your say at calderdale.gov.uk/physical-activity-strategy-2017 and you can also join the conversation on social media using #ActiveCdale
