Our agreed vision for Lancashire and South Cumbria, as described in our ICS strategy, is to empower and support healthy communities so that people have the best start in life and can live and age well. 

We will do this by working well together, as equal partners, to put local people at the centre, join up health and care services, and address the critical challenges we face. By working together more effectively we will make a real difference to the lives of people and their families by supporting better health, improving health and care services and reducing health inequalities.

Joining up health and care is nothing new – we have been working towards this for some years, and we want to build on this excellent work. This includes further strengthening the incredible joint working we have seen throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, which has made a massive difference to the lives of local people and their families.

If the Health and Care Bill is passed, the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System will become statutory and will include an NHS Integrated Care Board and an Integrated Care Partnership. 

The NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board will be a new statutory NHS organisation that will be known publicly as “NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria”.

We expect that, subject to legislation, on 1 July 2022 the eight CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria will closedown and a new ICB organisation will be established. Key roles for the ICB have been confirmed as David Flory CBE, ICB Chair Designate and Kevin Lavery, ICB Chief Executive DesignateFive non-executive members have also been appointed with more details here.

More information will be available regarding any changes to NHS organisations. There will be no changes to how local residents access NHS frontline services in Lancashire and South Cumbria as part of these changes.
