The Clinical Advisory Board has proved to be the perfect vehicle to bring together Clinical Directors from across Bradford district & Craven to respond to the acute issues around Covid-19 and to look to the future. We have been fortunate in the last couple of months to also welcome colleagues from BTHFT and BDCFT to focus on how we can [...]

The great work that PCNs were doing around the new Integrated Community Diabetes Service has understandably been on hold since March, but we are confident that the way PCNs have worked together to manage this pandemic will set them in good stead for picking up this work again when circumstances allow.

Our Primary Care Streaming Service has also looked very different in the last few months, with the GPs moving out of the Bradford Royal Infirmary AED to also work remotely to support LCD. The A&E Delivery Board is working with BCA to look at how the service will develop and what it will look like in the future, [...]

Extended Access has continued to run in remote form throughout the pandemic. Whilst we had to stop nurse and HCA services, physio ran until all pre-booked appointments had been fulfilled and we retained GPs for telephone appointments for both practices and LCD to use as needed. As practices started to use less and less, we offered more to LCD [...]

Some key members of the BCA Extended Access Working Group were instrumental in assisting the CCG to set up the Red Hubs we have in the Bradford district & Craven area. I would very much like to thank members of our own team and those from City Health Federation and Trust Primary Care who helped to make this happen. It was a real collaboration, [...]
