Our strategic priorities re-set programme
We have been working on a strategic priorities re-set programme that’s designed to help us meet the challenges we expect to see for our Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership.
These challenges include meeting our core responsibilities that improve the health and wellbeing of our communities as well as our colleagues and to deliver sustainable change across health and care so that we can achieve our vision to keep people ‘happy, healthy at home’.
Our focus is on delivering the best possible outcomes, including reducing inequalities, for our communities and for our colleagues.
To help us understand how we can collectively meet the future challenges we expect to see across health and care, we commissioned two independent reviews of our place-based system. The first was done by Mike Farrar, who worked with key colleagues across our partnership to understand their views on what they believed would help us build on the strong foundations we have in place locally.
The second report was by David Hambleton, who was asked to focus on the work we do in our communities which can also be describes as out-of-hospital care and support. Both these reports, alongside national guidance such as the NHS Oversight Framework and regional guidance through the NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board, has helped us shape our thinking around our future five priorities.
Our five priorities are as follows:
- Access to care – the executive lead for this is Mel Pickup and the director lead is Helen Farmer
- Children and young people – the executive lead for this is Therese Patten and the director lead is Nagina Javaid (note Nagina will be in post in early 2023)
- Communities – the executive lead for this is Foluke Ajayi and the director lead is Louise Clarke
- Healthy Minds this includes mental health, learning disabilities and neurodiversity – the executive lead for this is Iain MacBeath and the director lead is Sasha Bhat
- Workforce – the executive lead for this is Foluke Ajayi and the director leads are Daniel Hartley and Karen Stansfield
Strategic Priorities – Breakfast Bites
During 5 – 16 December 2022, we held a series of breakfast bites to give people a chance to find out more about the progress we’re making in our five priority areas. The presentation slides from each of the breakfast bites are available below.
If colleagues were unable to make the Healthy Communities session you can look at the Healthy Communities presentation to learn more. We have also pulled together a plan on a page describing our purpose and areas of focus
If colleagues were unable to make the Children, Young People & Families session you can look at the Children, Young People & Families presentation to learn more.
If colleagues were unable to make the Workforce session you can look at the Workforce presentation to learn more.
If colleagues were unable to make the Healthy minds session you can look at the Healthy minds presentation to learn more.
If colleagues were unable to make the Access to care session you can look at the Access to care presentation to learn more.
Phase one of our strategic priorities re-set programme
To help us ensure we considered the views of colleagues and wider partners, we carried out phase one of our strategic priorities reset programme. This included a slide set – backed up by an anonymous survey as well as team meeting feedback form – that outlined our initial thinking.
While we have been clear that the five priority areas are fixed, we did want to ensure we listened to your views so that we could be clearer on what you believe each of the five priority areas should cover. In addition we wanted to know what impact working on these priorities will have on existing programmes and projects.
Your feedback has resulted in a revised narrative and slide set as well as contributing to the planning for our involvement event that took place on 30 September 2022. In addition, what you’ve told us is helping executive and director leads for the priorities think through their planning, factoring in what matters to you, our colleagues, our partners and our communities. You can see how we have listened and responded to your feedback in this you said, we did update.
Phase two of our strategic priorities re-set programme
Following up from the first phase of our programme – see more details below – we delivered our second phase giving everyone a further opportunity to get involved. While we have been clear that the priorities are fixed, we used the involvement event during the second phase to clearly define what these priorities mean for you and for you to help us understand if there’s anything we haven’t considered and any unintended impacts this may lead to.
To help us with our planning for phase two, we carefully listened to what you have had told us during phase one to help bring our future vision to life.
