The latest issue :
In this spring edition you’ll find out about plans to tackle some of the biggest health concerns in our region – heart disease and lung cancer. There’s a focus on the development of primary care networks, and information about how you can get involved and have your say.
The publication of the NHS Long Term Plan at the beginning of the year provided us with certainty about the future direction of health services. It also reinforced a lot of the work we’ve been doing as CCGs and as part of the wider West Yorkshire health system. Overall, the plan sets out ambitions for ensuring the NHS is fit for the future and covers a range of topics including primary and community care; prevention of ill health; mental health and the use of digital technology.
