Public invited to hear about progress and plans for local health services

Local people will have a chance to hear from the clinical leaders responsible for buying healthcare services for Bradford and ask any questions they have at the CCGs’ annual general meetings (AGMs) this month.

Members of NHS Bradford City and NHS Bradford Districts Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will report back on progress over the last financial year. They will highlight achievements in improving the quality of services for local people and address some of the future challenges facing the NHS both locally and nationally.

NHS Bradford Districts CCG’s meeting is on 12 September 2018 and NHS Bradford City CCG’s meeting will be held on 18 September 2018. As part of the AGMs, the CCGs will present their annual report and annual accounts for 2017/18.

People are welcome to attend the meetings and put questions to the CCGs. Both meetings will be held at Carlisle Business Centre, Bradford, BD8 8BD and will take place on the following dates.

  • NHS Bradford Districts CCG AGM: Wednesday 12 September 2018, 1.40-4pm.
  • NHS Bradford City CCG AGM: Wednesday 18 September 2018, 6.15-8.15pm.

Dr Andy Withers, clinical chair, NHS Bradford Districts CCG, said: “We’ve been learning from, and building on, the health outcome successes of last year whilst rolling out fresh plans to improve the health needs of our local population. Our AGMs will offer the opportunity to reflect on our achievements so far, as well as providing a glimpse into the future of healthcare in Bradford.

“Since last year, our award-winning Bradford’s Healthy Hearts campaign has been taken up by a number of CCGs nationally and, with our partners, we are expanding this work to reach patients across the whole of West Yorkshire and Harrogate. Locally, the campaign reduced the number of people admitted to hospital by 10%, prevented 74 strokes, 137 heart attacks, at the same time saving over £1.2 million for the NHS.

Dr Akram Khan, clinical chair at NHS Bradford City CCG, said: “Our AGMs will give people an opportunity to hear about the achievements of our CCGs over the last year, the challenges they have faced and their vision for the future.

“A lot of collaborative work has taken place across the system. Our CCGs have been working with Bradford Care Alliance to achieve Primary Care Home communities – clusters of collaborating GP practices that will provide tailored local health services that wrap around the patient’s needs.

“We’re also really proud of new pathways that focus on urgent care for children admitted to hospital with wheeziness or diarrhoea and vomiting that enable them to receive the treatment they need in the familiar environment of their own homes.

“Although there’s plenty to celebrate, there’s always work to be done. It’s important to us that we never lose the two way dialogue between health professionals and our patients. Everything we’ve achieved so far is a result of considered and open discussions with the people of Bradford. We will always be committed to ensuring that local health services are safe, high quality and accurately reflect the needs of local people.”
