Local health, care, voluntary and community organisations are now formally working together under the Bradford Provider Alliance (BPA), to improve services for local people across the Bradford district. This means that in time, the BPA organisations will collectively be responsible for improving health and social care outcomes for individuals – rather than as individual organisations – so that services are more joined-up, and organisational boundaries don’t get in the way of good care.
Who’s in the Bradford Provider Alliance?
The BPA partners are:
- Affinity Care
- Bradford Care Alliance Community Interest Company (or CIC)
- Bradford VCS Alliance
- City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
- Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire
- Bradford Care Association
- Local Care Direct
- Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust
- Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
What does the Bradford Provider Alliance do?
The BPA aims to develop and deliver more joined-up, high quality and sustainable health, care and community services that improve the wellbeing of people across Bradford. The work is being delivered by existing providers across the district. The BPA has an Integrated Management Board (IMB) to enable the members to work more closely together to improve local services. The BPA is initially focusing on developing better ways of delivering Diabetes and Out of Hospital care to better meet individual’s needs and helping people to stay well, ideally in the community and closer to home.
