Our Partnership is made up of organisations working closely together to plan services and address the challenges facing health and care services across the area.
In this section you will find links to useful information and publications about our partnership.
We are committed to meaningful conversations with people, on the right issues at the right time. We believe this is an important part of the way we work.
Engagement gives people an opportunity to have their say on services. By gathering people's views, it helps us understand what matters to people.
In this section you will find all Freedom of Information (FOI) requests made to our Partnership. You can also ask a question of your own.
This accessibility statement applies to the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership website at wyhpartnership.co.uk
This website is run by West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. We have set up this website so people can:
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. We also talked to some people with different abilities at Bradford Talking Media to ask them about our website and what we should do to make it easier to read, look at and find your way around.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible. At the moment, here are some of the things we know are not fully accessible:
We are working to make our website more accessible.
If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille:
We’ll consider your request and get back to you within 21 days.
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, or you have a complaint, contact:
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the following non-compliances:
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images by October 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
The cost of changing some of the content we link to from this website would be disproportionately high. This includes some older videos which are not captioned, and some PDFs.
We are currently looking at navigation to see if there are any problems. Please report any problems you find to:
Some of our PDFs, documents, spreadsheets and presentation files are essential to the people who work for the organisations we support. For example, we have PDFs with information about local health and care services, programmes and projects, PDFs of meeting notes and PDFs of reports.
We plan to continue to produce PDFs on our website for the people who need them, and are working to make sure any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards. If you find a PDF, Word document, Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint presentation on our website which is inaccessible, please contact us for an alternate version:
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We are working with Bradford Talking Media to ask them about our website and what we should do to make it more accessible.
We are also working with Frank Design, the company who made and manage our website, to fix all the parts of our website that are not accessible, and to make improvements to make our website more accessible in future.
