techUK Industry Briefing with NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care System

As part of our work exploring Integrated Care Systems (ICS), techUK held an industry briefing with Dawn Greaves, Digital Programme Manager at West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board.

West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership focuses on the health and care needs of local people with some key priorities. You can read about these in the Five Year Plan; 'Better health and wellbeing for everyone'. As an ICS, it encompasses a 2.4M population with a high variation in BAME groups between places. Dawn also noted that it includes 400k+ unpaid carers and 150k+ volunteers.

Dawn set out West Yorkshire’s 10 big ambitions:

  1. Increasing healthy life years
  2. Achieve a 10% reduction in the gap in life expectancy between people with mental health and learning disabilities, and the rest of the population by 2024
  3. Address the health inequality gap for children living in households with the lowest incomes
  4. Increase early diagnosis rates for cancer by 2024
  5. Reduce suicide by 10%
  6. Achieve 10% reduction in anti-microbrial resistance infections
  7. Achieve a 50% reduction in stillbirths, neonatal deaths, brain injuries
  8. Have a more diverse leadership
  9. Become a global leader in the climate emergency
  10. Strengthen local economic growth
