Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership will hold its Partnership Board meeting in public at the Highfield Centre in Keighley on 14 March at 9.30am – 12.30pm.
The Partnership Board is the key decision-making body for health and care in Bradford District and Craven, and their meeting will hear feedback from the local communities gathered during the recent ‘Listen in’ events. This is one of the ways that the partnership makes sure that the decisions they take about health and care services reflect people’s needs.
In February, the ‘Listen in’ team visited community groups and local people in Keighley, Ilkley and surrounding villages to understand what matters most to them. They visited places ranging from toddler groups to foodbanks, craft clubs to IT classes, and also set up stall in Keighley Market Hall to offer information about cost-of-living support, mental health services, healthy lifestyle advice and support from social prescribers.
The feedback from ‘Listen in Keighley’ will be presented and discussed in the Partnership Board meeting. The Board will receive reports from its committees, including finance and quality reports, and discuss the partnership’s plans for the year ahead. They will also hear from colleagues from the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership about the overall strategy for the next five years. People are also invited to raise questions for the board online at engagebdc.com
Elaine Appelbee, Chair of Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership Board said, “It was a pleasure to visit the Highfield Centre during the Listen in week and hear from local families about their experiences of our health and care system, so I’m glad to be coming back to Keighley for our Board meeting and to hear the feedback from the week’s activity.
“We want to have open and honest conversations with our communities to understand what matters most to them and how we can work together to improve health outcomes for people in Bradford District and Craven.
“I encourage our communities to ask questions to our Partnership Board which will be answered publicly.”
Copies of the agenda and meeting papers are available on the Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership website.
