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.

The LWAB for West Yorkshire and Harrogate is jointly chaired by Mike Curtis, Local Director for Health Education England working across Yorkshire and the Humber, and Dr Ros Tolcher, Chief Executive of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.
