Jo Webster is proud to be the place-based lead for Wakefield District Health & Care Partnership. She was also the Chief Officer of NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group, and is Corporate Director for Adults and Health at Wakefield Council and has responsibility for community services at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. This gives her overall responsibility for integrating health and care for the whole of the area.
She is one of the first leaders in England to have three executive roles across one local health and care system. Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group was rated Outstanding in 2021 under her leadership.
"I’m in a privileged position to help join up care in the interests of the people in our communities. I have a bird’s eye view of what we need to do to prevent ill health, improve people’s life chances, improve care experience, and reduce variation. Wakefield’s close relationships, single system ethos and willingness to challenge each other are part of the reasons why, in Wakefield and West Yorkshire, these changes feel like a natural progression."
