Professor Mel Pickup, Chief Executive at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Place-base Lead for Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership, said: “I’m delighted that we’re holding our second Act as One Festival for Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership. This is an opportunity for us to really showcase and spotlight what’s happening at our place, not just locally, but regionally and nationally.

“The festival allows us to share learning and best practice, and there will also be a fun and interactive element to the festival by having the wellbeing sessions. We have a number of sessions, this includes the fantastic work that our Healthy Minds apprentices are doing around the prevention of mental health of children and young people, working in partnership with schools across the district.

“All sessions are free including the wellbeing boost sessions. If you work in health and care I’d encourage you to book onto the sessions. Colleagues from local authorities, independent care organisations or the voluntary and community sector are also able to sign up to the sessions.”
