A new clinical commissioning group for Bradford district and Craven

Engagement period:  7 May - 9 June 2019

Areas covered:  Bradford district and Craven

Closing date: 9 June 2019

What we are asking about during the engagement:

We are asking what you think about a proposal to reduce the number of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Bradford district and Craven from three to one.  This would involve creating one new CCG to cover the whole area.

This proposal is not about any other NHS organisations – like hospitals and mental health, community or family doctor (GP) services – or any care services provided by local councils.  It does not affect any services we buy from voluntary and community sector (VCS) or any other organisations.

To find out more about our proposals, please read the engagement document

You can give your views on the proposals by in an online survey or by completing the engagement questionnaire, which can be returned by email or post:

ActEarly - Born In Bradford 

What makes a healthy and happy child?  Born in Bradford wants to hear your views!

Born in Bradford is embarking on an exciting new project called ‘ActEARLY’. ActEARLY will brings together different groups of people including researchers, policy makers and people living and working in communities from Bradford, in order to develop new and exciting projects to improve the health and happiness of families living in Bradford. The vision is to promote a healthier, happier, and fairer future for children through a focus on improving environments that influence health, and enhancing life opportunities. In ActEARLY they will be co-producing research with members of the community, researchers and other key stakeholders; this means that they will be talking to lots of different people about what they think is important.

To launch the ActEARLY project Born In Bradford are asking anyone who lives or works in Bradford to let us know about what they think helps keep our children happy and healthy.

How we share information

During consultations and engagement, people tell us what matters most to them about the services involved, and we record this information.  When reporting back on what people have told us, we do not share or publish any information which identifies individual responses, but may use anonymous quotes from people's answers to highlight themes. We analyse all the responses to surveys, engagement and consultation to identify important themes in what people tell us.
