Reports by regulatory organisations

The West Yorkshire Area Team of NHS England annually assesses our CCG and establishes development priorities for the coming year. This annual assurance letter is a summary of the meeting and draws upon the written materials provided by the CCG and from the regular interactions which have taken place with the CCG during the whole financial year.

Audit Reports delivered at governing body level

Audit reports (including clinical and corporate governance) are regularly considered by our governing body and are available within the papers they consider. You can find our governing body papers here

Service user surveys

One of our key priorities is to have patients and the public at the heart of our decision making. Each and every member of our team has a vital role to play in this. 

We are a vibrant and responsive organisation with strong clinical leadership and have set ourselves clear objectives and priorities. We work closely with our staff, local people and partners to achieve our visions of reducing health inequalities and enabling the people of Bradford to enjoy better health.

We want to hear what you think about your local NHS. It’s important that you give your views and feedback as it helps to shape your NHS services for the future.

We are keen to hear your views and ideas about any aspect of our CCG and how you would like to be involved going forward.

More information about the surveys and our engagement work is available here.

Privacy impact assessments

Our privacy impact assessment and information governance checklist is available here.

Environmental policy proposals, plans and programmes

Developing sustainable working practices within our organisation, commissioning cycle and member practices is a priority for our CCG.

Many of our patients will live longer and expect their lives to be healthier and happier than those of their predecessors. But there needs to be a step change if we are to make inroads into the health inequalities suffered by them and to address the future health needs of all our population. We are working, through the integration and change board (ICB), ever more closely with our partners to transform the health and social care landscape, join services up around our patients, realise efficiencies and drive forward the self-care and prevention agendas.

We are committed to reducing waste – for example, resources are wasted when patients feel they need to visit A&E when they could have been dealt with in primary care or community settings. To avoid this waste we are concentrating on things like patient information, access to GP services, integration of services, and commissioning primary care skills and expertise in A&E to reduce, and better manage, demand.

Our approach is to:

  • work in partnership and in an integrated way with other organisations and our communities
  • reduce carbon by: planning and buying services which are sustainable, making sure we don’t waste energy or supplies and supporting a “green” approach to travel
  • ensure our governing body, member practices and staff are aware of the importance of sustainability
  • make sure we adapt to the changing climate in the broadest sense and that we have plans in place to deal with it
  • share good practice.
