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.

The Health and Social Care Secretary, with the support of NHS England and health and care system leaders, set out new proposals to build on the successful response to the pandemic on 11 February 2021. The proposals will bring health and care services closer together to build back better by improving care and tackling health inequalities. The measures set out in a government White Paper, will modernise the legal framework to make the health and care system fit for the future and put in place targeted improvements for the delivery of public health and social care. It will support local health and care systems to deliver higher quality care to their communities, in a way that is less legally bureaucratic, more accountable and more joined up, by bringing together the NHS, local government and partners together to tackle the needs of their communities as a whole.
The proposals build on the NHS’ recommendations for legislative change in the NHS Long Term Plan.
Two key documents that will support the transition to the new ways of working set out in the NHS White Paper were published on Wednesday 16 June 2021: the Design Framework and guidance on the Employment Commitment can be found on the NHS England website.
As a Partnership, we will be reviewing these important documents over the next few days and will provide more information over the coming weeks.
With the support of South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT) and following a process agreed by the Partnership’s Chairs and Leaders Reference Group, Rob Webster, our CEO Lead will work full-time as our CEO lead from Monday 5 July 2021. These arrangements will be subject to review in three months’ time, when national appointment processes should have concluded.
NHS England and NHS Improvement currently intend to run a national recruitment process for integrated care system (ICS) CEO leads to be appointed substantively to new statutory ICS organisations. This is likely to conclude by September. We are clear that this change expands Rob’s time from his current part-time role in the job and is an arrangement without prejudice to any recruitment process that will be carried out later in the year.
