West Yorkshire and Harrogate public committee meeting January 11th

The West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will meet in public on Tuesday 11 January 2022, 11am to 1pm.

The Committee, which is part of the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (WY HCP), has a shared health programme of work that aims to further improve the health and wellbeing of the 2.4 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 11 January 2022 will discuss:

  • The harmonisation of nine commissioning policies across West Yorkshire
  • The implications for the Joint Committee of the delay to the Implementation of the Health and Social Care Act.

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 10 January 2022. 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.

The meeting can also be watched live via the same link.

All questions submitted will be published on the Joint Committee webpage as usual.
