In Morecambe Bay there are 9 ICC's which have been created to help bring together local health and care organisations:
- Barrow & Millom
- Ulverston, Dalton & Askam
- Grange & Lakes
- Queen Square.
These ICCs have been formed around GP Practice populations and have been developed in response to the changing needs of the population, including a growing elderly population with increasingly complex health needs .
Health and social care professionals, GPs, the voluntary sector and the community are working as one team in each ICC.
By understanding the challenges that each area faces, and using the knowledge and experience of service users, the community can work together with the health and care organisations to improve their health and wellbeing.
