Yorkshire and the Humber
To help ensure health and care services are built around the needs of people in Yorkshire and the Humber area, local providers and commissioners are working together to produce Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP).
We have three local workforce action boards in Yorkshire and the Humber:
The Humber, Coast and Vale STP area is supported by the Humber, Coast and Vale LWAB and is co-chaired by Mike Curtis, Local Director Yorkshire and the Humber and Michael Proctor, Deputy Chief Executive, York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw STP area is supported by the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw LWAB and is co-chaired by Mike Curtis, Local Director, Yorkshire and the Humber and Kevan Taylor, Chief Executive, Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust.
The mission of our Local Workforce Action Board (LWAB) is to ensure that our workforce is a positive enabler to achieving our ambitions for health and care in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw.
A framework has been designed to help us achieve this and can be download in the related documents area below. It presents a comprehensive view of what's happening across our area and provides a call to action and potential solutions for some of workforce challenges identified. Working together as an Accountable Care System (ACS) across the region is by its nature ambitious, far reaching and innovative - the affordability challenge means that our workforce plans must also be so. In South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, we have a strong track record of clinical transformation and workforce innovation - this is something we must embrace and build-on as we move forward.
The West Yorkshire STP area is supported by the West Yorkshire LWAB and is co-chaired by Mike Curtis, Local Director, Yorkshire and the Humber and Dr Ros Tolcher, Chief Executive, Harrogate and District Foundation Trust.
