In Morecambe Bay there are eight ICCs which have been created to help bring together local health and care organisations:
- Barrow and Millom
- Mid Furness
- Grange and Lakes
A PDF version of the map of our ICCs can be downloaded here.
The focus of ICCs is to ensure that people are supported to improve their own health and wellbeing and that when people are ill or need support, they receive the best possible joined-up care. The ICCs empower people to take an active role in their health and wellbeing and support them to manage their conditions at home. Everyone who is registered at a GP practice in Morecambe Bay belongs to an ICC.
During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the ICCs have been involved in the #Ok2Ask campaign which encourages families and individuals across Morecambe Bay who have become vulnerable to ask for help. You can find out more about the #Ok2Ask campaign here.
