About us

post

Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust runs Family Health Services across the Bradford and Wakefield Council areas.

Across Wakefield we provide health visiting services, school nursing services, a vaccination and immunisation service and we also support young mums through our family nurse partnership service.

Across Bradford we provide health visiting services, school nursing services including a special educational needs school nursing team and a vaccination and immunisation service. We also offer oral health programmes, health services for children looked after by the Council, those who are leaving care and children and young people who are supported by youth offending services.

We are committed to promoting inclusion and celebrating diversity. We provide non-judgmental and inclusive care for families who identify as LGBT+.

Prevention and early help

In Bradford we work closely with the Council across the four Family Hubs. The Hubs cover all of the Bradford Council District and there is more information on each link about what is happening in your area including our Well Baby clinics: Keighley and Shipley, Bradford East, Bradford West and Bradford South.

In Wakefield we work closely with the Council’s Early Help service that supports children, young people and their families across the District.

Interpreting

If you need an interpreter for your visit, please request this when you appointment is made.  You can view all the information on this website in different languages by clicking on ‘select language’ in the toolbar.  If you live in the Bradford district, there are also free English language classes.

Your information and how we use it

When you are seen by any of our services we will record relevant information about you and your health, on paper and computer, to help us care for you. This information is part of your life long health record and will be kept in case we need to see you again. By sharing this information with other healthcare professionals and services we can make sure that we provide you with the best possible care – whenever and wherever you need it. If you were to become unwell, the more information each professional has about you and your health the better we are able to care for you.

All NHS staff are bound by law and a strict code of confidentiality and only staff who are directly involved in your care can see your records. The information we record and who it may be shared with, can differ depending on which of our services you use. See more details about how your information will be stored.

Compliments and complaints

We’re always keen to hear your experience of our services, this is then used to help improve services for people in the future. There are various ways you can leave your feedback which are all available on the Trust website. If you want to make a compliment or complaint about care you can contact our Patient Advice and Complaints team.

DBS checks

All staff working with children and parents have been subjected to checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service. These are known as DBS checks and in 2013 the DBS checks replaced the older style CRB checks. These are in addition to recruitment checks and ensure we make informed and safe recruitment decisions, based on nationally held records, and prevent unsuitable people from working with children and vulnerable people.
