Population Health

Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria, which is a partnership of Local Authority, NHS, public sector and communities, is one of four areas in the country to be recognised as leading the way in starting to improve outcomes, reduce inequalities and address the broad range of individual, social and economic factors affecting the health of local people.

Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria is home to a growing population of 1.7 million people. More of us are getting older and experiencing long-term health problems. Some of this disease could be avoided or the ill-effects slowed down, if we took positive action to prevent it.

Through Population Health Management, we can use information which is already held about people to look at the best way to help people live longer, providing personalised care tailored to their needs. One example is using data to identify people who have multiple long term conditions and understanding the ways in which they can be supported to prevent complications and live independently. This approach will be developed across Lancashire and South Cumbria to make a real difference to people’s lives.
