An update from Steve Russell, Chief Executive for Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust
I think we’re incredibly fortunate to operate in the environment that is created and fostered by the Partnership and by WYAAT. In my first 100 days or so it has felt as if that is an environment in which collaboration, respect, support and peer challenge are promoted and I think that’s an incredibly important enabler for us to do our work in our places.
Update from WYAAT Clinical Leader, Robin Jeffrey
The clinical role for WYAAT is new and involves providing clinical leadership for the hospital programmes and taking a strategic and innovative view of clinical services. It is also all about promoting engagement and collaboration with clinical teams; and forging links within West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership.
This week’s leadership message comes from Matt Graham, Programme Director for West Yorkshire Association of Acute Trusts (hospitals working together).
As the Programme Director for the West Yorkshire Association of Acute Trusts (WYAAT - hospitals working together), my role is to work with colleagues in the six acute hospital trusts in the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership.
