West Yorkshire Voice Newsletter
Healthwatch have just launched first edition of their West Yorkshire Voice newsletter. Launched in March, West Yorkshire Voice (WYV) is a new network that aims to hear from people, groups, local panels, networks, and organisations. It aims to ensure the voice of people is at the heart of decisions made about health and care by the new West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB).
Cathy Elliott, Chair of the ICB said:
“We really want to reach as many people as possible, so that we can make sure people’s feedback and experiences of local services are heard at the highest level. This is ultimately all about making the right decisions and ones that make a positive difference to everyone’s lives”.
In each newsletter, we will let you know about what is happening and ways to get involved at a West Yorkshire level and really encourage you to share your experiences and feedback.
