West Lancashire continues to be part of the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS). Locally our West Lancashire Partnership is continuing to develop with key partners involved in the discussions.
The partnership has signed up to a common purpose statement which is: We are working together to address what the people of West Lancashire want and need, to improve everyone’s overall wellbeing and enhance their quality of life.
Two areas of initial focus are population health and frailty so the partners can test out some of the principles of integration that we have all jointly committed to.
Our members include Lancashire County Council, West Lancashire Borough Council, NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, Virgin Care, GP practices, including Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and West Lancashire CVS (Council of Voluntary Services).
