Mid Yorkshire Trust has been on a fantastic improvement journey providing acute hospital services to more than half a million people living in the Wakefield and North Kirklees districts of West Yorkshire. It offers services in three main hospitals – Pinderfields (Wakefield), Dewsbury and District and Pontefract. In addition, The Trust provides community services to the people of Wakefield in a range of community settings such as health centres, clinics, GP surgeries, family centres and in people’s own homes. This means our patients benefit from hospital and community services working more closely together to ensure they receive their care in the most appropriate place for them – when and where they need it.


The amazing Maternity Teams, based within this Trust, have a continuity of care team established at their stand alone birth centre, in Wakefield. They have a second geographical team starting as of February 2020 and a plan for further teams rolling out in Summer. The Maternity teams are doing really well with their Attain and PReCePT programmes, with a range of maternity improvement and transformation projects in progress.
