What is integrated working?
In integrated working patients see the professional who can most effectively meet their needs at any one time, regardless of the organisation that professional works for.
What it means for you
Our aim is to keep people living healthily, independently and feeling in control of their own health and wellbeing.  If you need help from the health and care system, we want to make it as easy as possible to access and provide an experience which is tailored to your individual needs.

Everyone who lives, works, or even visits North Cumbria will benefit from better integrated health and care.

All members of the community stand to benefit from services which are easier to access, better organised, more joined-up and, most importantly, focused around patient need.

What it means for staff
Our  workforce will be at the very heart of truly integrating care across North Cumbria and joining up services in a better way for patients.
 

How we are working differently in North Cumbria

 
 

Removing Organisational Boundaries

We are working in a more integrated way than ever before, bringing teams from different organisations together in the best interests of our patients and communities. This should mean more effective care, with fewer barriers and less duplication.

Integrated Care Communities

Integrated care communities (ICCs) work together to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their community. Health and social care professionals, GPs, the third and voluntary sector and the community will work as one team to support the health and wellbeing of local people. There are 8 across North Cumbria.

Co-Production

Co-production is working together. We know the NHS doesn’t have all the answers and we want to harness the energy, ideas and enthusiasm of our community to help us tackle the issues that are challenging our services. Services are better when the voice of the patient, the community and the staff help shape the delivery of our health and care.
