How we are working differently in North Cumbria
Removing Organisational BoundariesWe 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 CommunitiesIntegrated 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-ProductionCo-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.
