Why are we making changes?

Your NHS is facing a massive financial challenge. Nationally, your NHS needs to save £22bn by 2020/21. This year, 2016/17, NHS Bradford City and NHS Bradford Districts clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) need to save £13m. 

To make savings we need to work together. There are no additional resources available, savings need to be made now so that we can meet increasing demand and ensure that local services continue to meet your needs. 

We are looking at how to be more innovative, more productive and help you use your NHS resources better whilst making sure services are still of the highest quality.

How can you get involved?

To make sure you get the most out of every NHS pound spent in Bradford, we're asking you to take more control of your health and change the way you use some of your NHS services. Some things that we need you to do are:  

  1. take the medicines you are given - the most expensive medicines are the ones not taken. 50% of medicines are not taken as directed within 10 days of being prescribed.  
  2. not asking for medicines you don't need - check what you've got at home first. Your NHS can't reuse medicines once they have been given out. 
  3. use your NHS to the best - sometimes your GP isn't the best person to see, you can see your pharmacist, quickly without an appointment.
  4. buy some medicines from shops instead - it's cheaper to buy medicines for short term, minor illnesses, from your supermarket or pharmacy. 

Join in with the campaign on social media. Follow us on Facebook, @NHSinBradford or on Twitter, @NHSBDCCG and use #ItsOurNHS to show your support for making a change.

What are we doing?

We will be looking at your whole patient journey and seeing how we can transform your services to give you a better experience. We are also looking at how we can innovate, be more productive, prevent your NHS resources being used inappropriately and ensure your services are high quality.

confidentialityWould you like to make your record shareable to services that might care for you in the future or the services that are currently taking care of you?

Would you like your doctor to be able to see information recorded by those other services?

You now have the choice to ask your practice to make it possible to share your records should the need arise. Setting this up does not mean that anyone can look at your records. They still have to ask for your permission. If you would like to arrange this option please ask at reception.  The choice you record can be changed at any time.
