The NHS Constitution
The NHS Constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England. It sets out rights to which patients, public and staff are entitled, and pledges that the NHS is committed to achieving. The Greater Huddersfield CCG Constitution can be found here.
The NHS belongs to us all. Listening to what people say about local NHS services helps us to understand what patients need and want. Taking a wide range of views into account means that we can develop high quality health services that meet local needs and expectations. Public and patient involvement and experience feeds into our organisation and is used to influence our commissioning decisions. Your views really matter to us. The feedback we receive will contribute to the further improvement of local healthcare services and we make sure our engagement is embedded in our commissioning arrangements. It’s also vital that we tell people about our plans and explain the reasons why decisions have been made.

Research holds the key to delivering continuing sustainable improvements within the NHS. Hosted by Bradford Districts Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and working on behalf of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate CCGs, the West Yorkshire R&D team works closely with partners from academia and the health sector to increase innovation and share knowledge within clinical and care settings.
Further information about West Yorkshire Research and Development and how you can get involved can be found on the team’s website: https://www.westyorksrd.nhs.uk/
You can also find out more about local research by visiting the National Institute for Health Research’s (NIHR) Clinical Research Network website for Yorkshire and Humber. Examples of NIHR initiatives include:
- Join Dementia Research: Join Dementia Research is a national Database that exists to enable people to register their interest in participating in dementia research. People can then be matched to suitable studies that may be of interest to them. Anyone can register their interest to be involved.
Please feel free to contact the West Yorkshire Research and Development team with any questions you have about research taking place in primary care across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.

Share your experiences of maternity services during the pandemic – The way that some maternity services are delivered has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re working with Kirklees council and our local Maternity Voices Partnership to understand the impact of these changes on new mums, pregnant women and families.
We would like to hear from you if you have used maternity services during the pandemic, even if your contact was limited or has now finished. You can share your views with us in this survey: https://bit.ly/maternsurv

Evidence-based interventions, wave two
The Evidence-based Interventions programme is an initiative led by clinicians and patients. It is designed to reduce the number of medical or surgical interventions as well as some other tests and treatments which the evidence tells us are inappropriate for some patients in some circumstances and can sometimes do more harm than good. As part of this work the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges is consulting on a list of 31 tests, treatments and procedures. You can find out more and take part in the consultation here.
