West Yorkshire Research and Development (WY R&D) is the R&D team for CCGs and general practices across the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, working collaboratively with partners to support practices to develop, deliver and implement research.

This session will explore the implications of the ongoing transformation of Clinical Commissioning Groups into Integrated Care Systems. In West Yorkshire a place-based ICS model has allowed for the development of new place-based research delivery models across our system. This session will provide an opportunity to discuss ongoing pilot work related to these, with particular focus being given to three different models being developed alongside local partners in Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield.

This session will also provide an opportunity to discuss barriers and opportunities that relate to the recruitment of participants to primary care research studies, exploring issues related to I.T. systems, data access, and an increasing need for high quality research to be made more accessible to those who are currently most underserved. The development of a place-based ICS will provide opportunities to shape the primary care research landscape in new, innovative ways and this session will give time to exploring the potential there is to work collaboratively with general practices to increase research activity in our area and beyond.
