Integrated Care Communities (ICCs) – How do they work?
How will we do this?
- Joining up health and care services to work better together
- Providing more care out of hospital where possible
- Supporting people to have information about their health conditions
Health and social care professionals, GPs, the voluntary and third sector along with the community will work as one team to support the health and wellbeing of local people.
North Cumbria has been divided into 8 ICCs based on groups of GP practices and their patients.
By understanding the challenges that each area faces, it is hoped that the community can work together with health and care organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.
