Developing a five year strategy for Lancashire and South Cumbria
Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria has been working with partners to produce a Our Next Steps document to support the development of a five year partnership strategy and to explain who we are and what we do.
Our Next Steps is a strategic document which we have developed as part of our response to the NHS Long Term Plan (published in January 2019). Firstly, we set out our vision for a healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria. Then, we explain how working in partnership helps us respond to the challenges our communities and front line professionals are experiencing and how we can use our resources better. We also commit to building stronger alliances between our organisations to realise our ambition that Lancashire and South Cumbria becomes a great place to live and work.
This version of Our Next Steps has been developed for system leaders and senior clinical/programme leads and has been developed through discussions with more than 200 individuals from our partner organisations. Leaders have been asked to endorse the priorities set out here for the Lancashire and South Cumbra Integrated Care System and lead the process of sharing our thinking with the public, with our staff and with our local representatives. This is currently underway.
We are working with partners to listen to feedback on Our Next Steps for working together and delivering safe and sustainable services. We are committed to involving local people, staff and partners in the development of our shared five year strategy.
How can staff working in partnership organisations be involved?
We would like to involve staff in the development of a five year partnership strategy as part of our response to the NHS Long Term Plan (published in January 2019). This includes staff working in NHS, local authorities, universities, police, voluntary and community organisations along with social enterprise and business.
This survey includes just five questions which will be used to shape the development of the five year strategy. Please take a couple of minutes to provide your feedback.
How can local people share their views?
We are working with our partner organisations to make sure local people are involved and their feedback contributes towards the five year plan for Lancashire and South Cumbria. The plan for our system has already involved local people through engagement within our five local areas and this will continue as local and neighbourhood plans are developed.
Below is a survey for local people to share their views on the vision and partnership priorities across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
