Bradford City CCG and Bradford Districts CCG work closely together and share some of the same functions and responsibilities. We also work closely with NHS Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG.
All three CCGs have collaborative arrangements in place to strengthen joint working across all three CCG areas for the benefit of our local communities. We work together to secure the best possible integrated and effective services for people in Bradford and Airedale. Much of this collaboration is on a day-to-day basis. However, the CCGs do also meet on a monthly basis to consider decisions that need to be made collectively.
We also work with other CCGs in the West Yorkshire and Harrogate area through the West Yorkshire Commissioning Collaborative, known as Healthy Futures. This means that we can make collective decisions on the planning, procurement and review of services where it is clear that there are cross boundary issues to be addressed and there clear benefits to be achieved. Recent work has focused on stroke, cancer, urgent and emergency care and paediatrics, as well as considering the strategic review of children’s services.
