A website has been launched to let local people know about plans to improve health care.

People can also find out how they can influence decision-making following a shake-up of health services next April.

The site has been launched by the new clinical commissioning group (CCG) that will cover Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven.

Next April, CCGs will replace primary care trusts and will give local doctors control over buying and designing health services. There will be three separate CCGs – Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, Bradford City, and Bradford Districts.

The CCGs say they want to make patients and the public central to decision-making.

Websites for each CCG tell people how they can get involved through an online feedback form, by phone, Twitter or Facebook. The sites include information about the CCGs, such as how they are governed, details of public meetings and latest news. The sites are at airedalewharfedalecravenccg.nhs.uk, bradfordcityccg.nhs.uk and bradforddistrictsccg.nhs.uk.
