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.

Our workforce strategy
They are the people who will work with partners to deliver reductions in health inequalities, tackle unwarranted variation in care and manage the resources we have available.
Our workforce plan sets out how we will support our staff, carers and volunteers to manage these unprecedented times and move towards a better future. It recognises that people matter and that our staff are our biggest asset and they deserve the very best support.
Our plan looks at recruiting people into health and care jobs; retaining the staff we have got through more flexible, supportive employment; and ensuring we have the right skills across all health and care organisations. All staff across all sectors are equally important to our plans. Volunteers, carers and paid staff have an important role to play and our plans will help to ensure they are developed, trained and supported.
The Partnership now has a dedicated workforce website to help us recruit and retain an affordable, skilled and resilient workforce. It was launched in February 2019 and can be found at https://workforce.wyhpartnership.co.uk
The national workforce implementation plan creates a stronger emphasis on the role of integrated care systems in workforce planning locally.

We’re looking to recruit more than 100 GPs from EAA countries as well as Australia and New Zealand. Qualified overseas medics already in the UK but not currently practicing are also eligible to apply. Successful applicants will be supported with dedicated and enhanced training programmes about general practice in England.

The international GP recruitment programme was created in support of the GP Forward View (GPFV), which recognises the pressures within primary care and general practice, in particular the challenge of workforce and GP recruitment. Following a successful bid to NHS England, we have embarked on a three-year project to recruit 110 international GPs to West Yorkshire & Harrogate.
