We want you to have a say in helping to shape the services we offer across Bradford, Wharfedale, Airedale and Craven.

By taking part in consultations and engagement, we get to understand your views and priorities better. This improves our decision-making when considering the full range of options available when a significant decision needs to be made.

On this page you will find the online consultations and engagement available to take part in at the moment:


Preparing for end of life care

Have you ever talked about end of life care and what would be important to you?

Health and care providers in Bradford district and Craven want to make sure that everyone in our district receives high quality care at the end of their life. To get this right, we want to understand people’s feelings about preparing for end of life – either for yourself or those closest to you.

The Engaging People team is running small discussion groups to listen to your thoughts, which will help to inform a new local plan for end of life care.

There are three focus groups planned, which will be taking place at HALE office, 1 Westgate, Shipley BD18 3QX:

Refreshments will be provided. Booking ahead of the focus groups is essential. If you wish to book a place, please email sonjia.peers@haleproject.org.uk or call 01274 271088. 

We are also encouraging If you can’t attend the focus groups but still wish to have your say, please fill out the survey here.

The survey closes on 1 July 2019.


West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts, phase 2 - cholesterol engagement 

In phase two of the Healthy Hearts project, the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts team will be concentrating on cholesterol.

There are two types of cholesterol – good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. If the level of bad cholesterol in your blood is too high it can increase the risk of a heart attack and stroke. To try to prevent that from happening GPs will very often prescribe statins for patients who have high levels of bad cholesterol or who are at risk of a heart attack and stroke. A key piece of this work will be when GPs write out to people recommending that they are prescribed a statin for the first time and also that some people have their existing prescription changed - if it is not working. This will be supported by lots of information on their website .

You can help shape this important work by answering a few simple questions. They won’t be asking your name or asking you to reveal any personal details. 

You can fill out the survey here

If you want to find out more about any aspect of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthy Hearts programme, email WYHHealthyHearts@yhahsn.com.

The survey will close on 30 June 2019.

How we share information

During consultations and engagement, people tell us what matters most to them about the services involved, and we record this information. When reporting back on what people have told us, we do not share or publish any information which identifies individual responses, but may use anonymous quotes from people's answers to highlight themes. We analyse all the responses to surveys, engagement and consultation to identify important themes in what people tell us.
