We are members of the public from the areas covered by the three clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Bradford district and Craven. The People’s Board is a forum for active and creative discussion about health services, where we help shape plans and influence thinking.

About us

We are here to challenge, support and represent a range of views from as many of the diverse communities that make up Bradford. Best of all we are doing this directly with the decision makers, so the voice of patients and the public is heard and represented at an early stage in developing plans or strategies.

It's the job of the People’s Board members to offer views from the communities they are connected to and to help develop plans for engagement to make sure the right people have been consulted before decisions are made.

You can find out more about our work and our members by visiting our blog, where we write a summary of each meeting and reflections from members on the topics discussed.

You can also follow the People’s Board on Twitter @NHSPeoplesBoard.

Or get in touch by emailing peoplesboard@bradford.nhs.uk.

Joining the People’s Board

We have been working hard to represent the views of patients, carers and the general public of Bradford City and Bradford Districts for over two years, and recently opened up the People's Board to cover the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven area.

Currently, we are looking for someone to represent the Wharfedale area. We are looking for enthusiastic, open-minded, committed individuals who are willing to bring important views from the community, a fresh perspective and challenge to the work of the Clinical Commissioning Groups.

To support the People’s Board, the CCGs asked Leeds Beckett University to work with members and stakeholders to carry out an evaluation. These reports have helped the CCGs and People’s Board members identify areas for improvement and development of this innovative approach to co-production.
