The aim of this programme is to establish a single West Yorkshire vascular service for Airedale, Bradford, Calderdale and Huddersfield, Leeds and Mid Yorkshire NHS Trusts, with two arterial centres in line with the recommendations of the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Senate.
In 2017, we began to create a single vision for the future of vascular services in West Yorkshire. This led to a set of principles agreed by the vascular clinicians and agreed by the WYAAT Chief Executives in July 2017.
NHS England, who commission vascular services, are leading on this area of work and we are working with them on how best to deliver specialist care across the area.
Matt Graham is the WYAAT programme lead.
