About us

Locala cannot guarantee the accuracy of this translation service.

Locala is a not-for-profit social enterprise that is proud to provide a variety of NHS community healthcare services to people in Kirklees, Calderdale and Bradford.

Those services care for, and support people, from before birth to end of life, ranging from health visitors to physiotherapy, and sexual health to district nursing, as well as dental care, school nurses, foot care, and drug and alcohol support.

Our colleagues always aim to provide high quality, value for money care and support people closer to home.

We’re a not-for-profit social enterprise, so we are in the great position of having the flexibility to tailor our services to meet the needs of our communities - and any financial surplus is re-invested straight back into supporting patient care.

We also work closely with GPs, Social Services, other local NHS organisations and Local Authorities to deliver a co-ordinated approach to care and support.

Part of our social enterprise approach to provide innovative services that reflect the needs of local communities means Locala is involved in partnership working with other agencies including:
