Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership will hold its Partnership Board meeting in public at St Andrew’s Church, Skipton on Tuesday 13 December 2022 at 13.30pm. The Partnership Board is the key decision-making body for health and care in Bradford District and Craven.

In October the Health and Care Partnership led on a week of ‘Listen in’ activities visiting community groups and local people in Craven to understand what matters most to them. Throughout the week, eighteen groups were visited by community involvement teams and senior leaders from across the partnership, who listened first hand to people’s experiences.

Elaine Appelbee, Chair of Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership Board said, “Getting out and talking to local people and community groups during the Listen in Craven week was a pleasure and privilege.  Bringing the Health and Care Partnership Board meeting to a community venue Skipton is another opportunity to connect with local people.

“In October, we listened to people about their lives and what really matters to them. Reflecting back what we heard at our Partnership Board meeting will be an important next step, to make sure we’re not just listening but taking action, and being transparent about how people’s insights are shaping our decision-making.”

The feedback from ‘Listen in Craven’ will be presented and discussed in the Partnership Board meeting, and has been published in a report that is available on 

Before the Partnership Board meeting on Tuesday 13 December, community groups who were visited during the ‘Listen in’ week have been invited to attend a lunch with board members. This opportunity is to allow the group leaders to talk about the incredible work they do and the things that are most important to local communities.

The key agenda items being discussed at the meeting on Tuesday 13 December include:

  • Public questions – questions asked by the public will be brought to the board for discussion and answering.
  • Feedback from Listen in – a report of views and experiences from local people from Craven about what matters most to them around health and care services will be presented
  • Place based lead update – board members will hear about the key updates that are happening around Bradford District and Craven from our partnership.

Copies of the agenda and meeting papers are available on the Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership website.
