The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group
Our health is changing. A lot of the illnesses we once knew are a thing of the past. The treatments we receive when we’re ill are often light years ahead of what we are used to. And the NHS is changing too. Maybe you want to know more about what the changes might mean? Or maybe you would like to share your views on the way change happens? Or maybe you want to let us know about your experience? It’s your health, and we want you to hear what you have to say. How can you share your views? We have set up a network for local people who care about the NHS to help us in the shaping of health services the ‘your health, your say’ network. What does ‘your health your say’ involve? We will send you regular information about the changes that are happening across the Mid Yorkshire area – that’s North Kirklees and the Wakefield District. You might also be asked to: • take part in discussion groups and conversations • attend public consultation events • fill in questionnaires. You can choose how much or how little you get involved. How can you add your name to the ‘your health your say’ network? If you would like to find out more about how you could get involved or if you would just like to receive more information about your local NHS services, please fill in the attached form.
About us Across the country groups of doctors and other clinicians are taking responsibility for ‘commissioning’ most local NHS services. That means planning and paying for them. In North Kirklees the NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is taking on this responsibility. In Wakefield District it is the NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Most patients who need hospital care in this area will be treated by The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. There are three vibrant local hospitals in Dewsbury, Wakefield (Pinderfields) and Pontefract. Together the CCGs and the hospitals are determined to provide services that give the best possible health results for local patients. And that’s why we hope you will want to get involved. Your health, your say However you choose to be involved in the your health your say network, you will be helping to shape local NHS services, for now and for future generations.
