West Yorkshire hospitals are working together to provide high-quality care for vascular patients
From 16 November 2020, all inpatient vascular treatment for patients at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) will take place at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Our hospitals are working together to ensure that patients continue to receive the highest quality care for their condition by making the most of the excellent staff and facilities across both sites. Whilst CHFT patients having surgery requiring an overnight stay will be treated at Bradford Royal Infirmary, diagnostics, day case treatment and outpatient appointments will remain at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The partnership between the two hospitals forms part of The West Yorkshire Vascular Service. This is an overarching single, shared regional vascular service to ensure that patients, regardless of where they live within West Yorkshire, have access to the same high-quality treatment.

The change to vascular services follows an extensive public consultation by NHS England in 2019. The feedback report from this consultation can be viewed here.
