Leeds Left Shift Blueprint
Partner organisations in Leeds have committed to achieve the Health and Wellbeing Strategy ambition that: "Leeds will be a caring city for people of all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest."
Health inequalities were already worsening before Coronavirus and the shock waves from the pandemic are now impacting upon families and communities, on mental and physical health even more.
Although, as a system there are areas we have got things right and are making a difference. We would like to learn from these things and do more of them in a systematic way though the Left Shift Blueprint.
We know that addressing health inequalities is no longer about doing the ‘extra things’ but about a focus on inequalities in everything we do, applying the totality of resources available to us as a Health system.
In this document, NHS Leeds CCG sets out our strategic commitments to playing our part in delivering this ambition.
