West Yorkshire Health & Care Partnership Health Inequalities

Improving health and wellbeing is at the very heart of the partnership and we are working with people, communities, and organisations to seize new opportunities for improving health.

We are working with partners to reduce health inequalities due to social, geographical, or other barriers and by addressing some of the preventable differences that contribute to inequality; we are tackling the unjust differences in life expectancy which exist across our area.

For example, people with learning disabilities have worse mental and physical health than people without. That’s why we are working with those who have learning disabilities so they can become health and care champions for our priority programmes including cancer, mental health, maternity care, and hospitals working together.

Our environment has causal links to health, and it is our ambition to work with all key organisations, sectors and communities, particularly around preventing ill health and promoting wellbeing.
