What we do and why

“We want the people of Kirklees to have health and social care that works for them – helping them stay well, get the best out of local services and manage any condition they face.

We listen to and learn from people’s experiences to help make health and care better. These are just some of the people that have helped us make care better for everyone. For every story you share, every experience you talk to us about we work hard to make change happen, thank you.”
