West Yorkshire and Harrogate Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups

The West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will meet in public on Tuesday 5 October 2021, 11am to 1pm. The Committee, which is part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WY&H HCP), has a shared health programme of work that aims to further improve the health and wellbeing of the 2.7 million people living across the area.

The meeting will be held virtually due to Government social distancing guidelines and to ensure people are not at any unnecessary risk.

The Committee has delegated powers from individual CCGs (Bradford district and Craven; Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield) to make collective decisions around specific work programmes, for example mental health, planned care, urgent care, and cancer.

A key part of their work involves sharing expertise and working closely with local councils, hospitals, care providers and voluntary community and social enterprise organisations – ensuring services are fit for the future.

The meeting on the 5 October will discuss:

  • Proposed new commissioning policies and pathways from the Partnership’s planned care programme
  • Proposals relating to the establishment of Integrated Care Boards (ICBs), which will take on the commissioning responsibilities of CCGs.

Committee meetings held in public are filmed live and offer the public an opportunity to ask questions about agenda items.  As we are holding the meeting virtually via digital technology, we are taking a different approach to questions.

Members of the public are asked to email their questions to westyorkshire.stp@nhs.net before 5pm on Monday 4 October 2021. They can also call 01924 317659 to submit questions.

We will then send members of the public a Microsoft Teams link to enable them to join the meeting for their question-and-answer item.

All questions submitted will also receive a written response after the meeting and will be published on the Joint Committee webpage as usual.
