From Helen Hirst, our Chair

This website is where we will be sharing our journey as we shape the future of local healthcare together.

Our ambitious plans will improve our buildings, embrace innovative new practices, and harness the transformative power of technology to deliver exceptional health and care services for people in Calderdale, Kirklees and across West Yorkshire.

We have a plan to do things differently, a plan which will build resilience by delivering more services in the community, supported by sustainable healthcare in our two hospitals, which will both have an A&E with our planned care located in Huddersfield and our unplanned (acute) services in Calderdale.

The economic ripple effect of this significant investment cannot be overstated and will boost local spending, enabling new jobs and skills development in construction and associated trades, apprenticeships for younger people, and opportunities in digital technologies.

We recognise the importance of addressing the climate emergency and so we are committed to ensuring “green” considerations are key to all our planning. We are working with partners to encourage more sustainable travel solutions and to reduce the need for people to travel for care where possible. We are also installing electric charging points at our parking facilities for people who do need to use a car.

So, as I said, exciting times ahead for us all, to achieve the best in healthcare right here in our local communities.

It’s a transformation journey ahead for us all, patients and their families, colleagues  and partners too, and I look forward to working with you all to deliver our shared long term ambitions and plans.
