West Yorkshire and Regional Collaboration

In addition to our focus on Leeds, the Leeds Health and Care Academy is proud to be part of the West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board and we actively contribute to our West Yorkshire People Plan. We work as a ‘team of teams’ with colleagues across Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, sharing our strengths and successes, accessing support, and learning from others. Our most recent work as part of the wider system has been to provide support for the COVID-19 vaccination training across West Yorkshire, hosting the West Yorkshire Talent Retention Hub, and supporting the development of the West Yorkshire Workforce Observatory. Our approach is built on common purpose and deep partnership working to create strong, collaborative, system-wide projects. Our clarity of focus, targeted investment and structured approach lays the foundations for positive change.
