Allowing you to get involved with, and influence, local health services decisions
The patient and communtiy network members are involved in a wide range of activity including; setting up groups to focus on specific topics of interest, creating newsletters, attending local events and organising activity within practices.
The Patient Network meets on a regular basis with the aim of listening to the community and sharing key health information. It's also a good chance to learn about what is happening in other practices and groups.
All the upcoming community and patient network meetings can be found in our events calendar. You don't need to be an existing member of the network to attend. Just turn up and see what the group is all about.
NHS Bradford District and Craven CCGs are committed to developing high quality services that meet the needs of our local population.
We are working in partnership with Community Action Bradford and District (CABAD) to provide training to our Patient Network and patient participation groups.
Our aim is to make these groups more effective at providing the feedback we need to better develop quality services and create a system that meets our communities' needs.
Please see this document for the latest training information.

Each session is being delivered as both a daytime and an evening session, in Bradford and in Keighley, to enable as many people as possible to take part.
An annual Patient Network celebration even took place on November 2018 at the Carlisle Business Centre; developed in partnership with the NHS Bradford City and Districts CCGs and the Bradford Patient Network.
The celebration event, as in previous years, was a huge success with more than 70 people attending. Approximately three quarters of the attendees (who completed the evaluation form) said the event was excellent or good.
The aim of the event was to celebrate how patients and the public make a difference to Primary Care. It also provided an excellent opportunity for the Bradford City and Districts CCGs to discuss some important and current topics with its patients. The topics that were discussed were:
