Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System
We have an ambitious vision to empower and support healthy local communities, so that local people have the best start in life and can live and age well. We are Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS), a partnership of NHS, local authority, public sector, voluntary, faith and social enterprise and academic organisations. We work together to join up health and care services, listen to the priorities of our communities, local people and patients and tackle some of the biggest challenges we are all facing.
Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is the name of our shared vision and five-year strategy for improving health and care services and helping the 1.8 million people in Lancashire and South Cumbria live longer, healthier lives. To achieve this we will need to make difficult decisions about how and where our services are delivered and how we organise ourselves to achieve our aims as a partnership. We have listened to local people and worked together to set out how we will deliver the aims of the NHS Long Term Plan and address the most urgent needs of our population.
