Born in Bradford is embarking on an exciting new project called ‘ActEARLY’. ActEARLY will brings together different groups of people including researchers, policy makers and people living and working in communities from Bradford, in order to develop new and exciting projects to improve the health and happiness of families living in Bradford. The vision is to promote a healthier, happier, and fairer future for children through a focus on improving environments that influence health, and enhancing life opportunities. In ActEARLY they will be co-producing research with members of the community, researchers and other key stakeholders; this means that they will be talking to lots of different people about what they think is important.
To launch the ActEARLY project Born In Bradford are asking anyone who lives or works in Bradford to let us know about what they think helps keep our children happy and healthy.
You can find out more about ActEarly and fill out the survey here.
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 email@example.com 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 will close on 1 July 2019.
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.

The survey will close on 30 June 2019.

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.
