We’re bringing together the NHS, local councils and voluntary, community and faith sector organisations across Preston, Chorley and South Ribble to improve the health, care and wellbeing of local people, to make improvements and change the way we work.
This new way of working is formally known as our Integrated Care Partnership and sees us working together on a formal basis to agree priorities and make joint decisions. This is because we know that alot of what determines health and happiness has little do with the NHS directly. So, by working in partnership we'll be able develop better ways of working across health and social care, to focus on wider health and wellbeing issues as well as focus on the care we provide. We know this new way of working will have huge benefits for local people, staff and services.
