This survey includes just five questions which will be used to shape the development of the five year strategy. Please take a couple of minutes to provide your feedback. Thank you.
About Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria
Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is the name we have given to a partnership of NHS, local councils, voluntary sector and community organisations working together to support the 1.7 million people who live in this part of North West England.
We are working together as an Integrated Care System (often abbreviated to ICS). The aims of the partnership are to join up health and care services, to listen to the priorities of our communities, local people and patients and to tackle some of the biggest challenges we are all facing.
We have worked with more than 200 individuals from our partner organisations to develop a document called Our Next Steps
for system leaders and senior clinical/programme leads.
The effectiveness of the ICS partnership will be judged by our ability to join up health and care services, to listen to the priorities of our communities, local people and patients and to tackle some of the biggest challenges we are all facing. Leaders across the system are proposing 8 priorities through which the partners agree to take action over the next five years:
- Maximise the benefits of our work in neighbourhoods
- Deliver an integrated health and social care workforce for the future with the capacity and capability to provide sustainable care and support to our local communities.
- Strengthen the resilience and mental health of people and communities
- Establish a group model for all hospital services in Lancashire and South Cumbria
- Reinvigorate strategic partnerships across the public sector
- Establish a public sector enterprise and innovation alliance with our ICS partners, including academic partners and Local Enterprise Partnerships to deliver inward investment and support job creation
- Bring the entire health and social care system back into financial balance
- Consolidate commissioning so that our arrangements for planning and prioritising our resources improve our population’s health and the outcomes of health and social care.
Leaders have been asked to endorse these priorities and lead the process locally of sharing our collective thinking with their staff and teams.
