Cllr Tim Swift

Chair, West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership

Councillor Tim Swift, Leader of Calderdale Council and Chair of Calderdale Health and Wellbeing Board will be Chair of the Partnership Board for the first two years.

Working alongside communities, the Partnership Board aims to give people the best start in life with support to stay healthy and live longer. Many factors determine whether someone leads a long and healthy life, including good housing, access to green space, and building an inclusive economy that creates more good jobs, reduces health inequalities and promotes opportunity for all.

These important factors are at the heart of the Partnership and I’m looking forward to working alongside other Board members to ensure we discuss these issues fully whilst providing the best support possible for those we serve. This is a priority to us all and one I welcome.
