Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is a partnership of organisations coming together to improve outcomes and care for local people, reduce pressures on services and make best use of our financial resources.
There are five local areas, as shown on the map. They provide a way in which all organisations and groups involved in health and care can join up locally.
All the feedback collected from these areas has been fed into developing a vision for health and care across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
We benefit from services that are already working in partnership. The people and groups involved in those services know we are facing some really tough challenges. They realise we need to act now to ensure we can safeguard our services for the future.
This website provides information about the work of the partnership and gives the opportunity to get involved locally.Why do we need change? Our priority areas

Flyde Coast - Your Care, Our Priority
Health and care organisations on the Fylde Coast are working together to make ‘Your Care, Our Priority’. To do this we are bringing together health and care professionals, as well as the community and voluntary sector, to create one integrated healthcare system on the Fylde Coast.
This means joining up different parts of health and care services so that they work seamlessly together. We know from talking to patients and the public that this doesn’t always happen. This not only means bad experiences for patients but also adds pressure to the local healthcare system
We are in unique geographical
position in West Lancashire, which requires us to look in the directions of
both Lancashire and Merseyside.
The West Lancashire Local Delivery Plan involves monumental
partner working. Not only with our Lancashire wide colleagues, but also
our local partners such as CCG colleagues in Southport and Formby, West
Lancashire Borough Council, Virgin Care, Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS
Trust, Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, social care, our active voluntary
community and faith sector, GP membership, patients, carers, our staff and many
