What is Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria?
Information for staff and teams across Lancashire and South Cumbria
As you’ll have seen through this website there is a lot of work to do, the next stage is to involve people in bringing together the details on what our vision for Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria could mean for everyone.
Organisations are involved in improvements that need to happen across the whole region and are working to develop local plans in five areas. These are the Blackpool & Fylde coast, Pennine Lancashire, central Lancashire, West Lancashire and Morecambe Bay.
Click the areas on the map below to find out about what is happening locally and where you can get involved.
‘Better Care Together’ is a review of health
and social care services for Morecambe Bay. It is being led by ten health organisations known as Bay Health and Care Partners. This area covers north Lancashire and south Cumbria.
Our Health Our Care is a programme which aims to deliver joined up health and social care to everyone throughout Greater Preston, Chorley and South Ribble.
Together A Healthier Future is a programme to improve our health and care system in Pennine Lancashire, which is made up of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.
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
