Across North Cumbria our mix of “out of hospital” service provision is fragmented and over-stretched meaning we have greater demand on both primary and secondary care services and often confusing journeys for patients.
What will we do?
Our plans are to improve care outside hospitals. We’ll do this through the development of our 8 Integrated Care Communities (ICCs).
We will also locate these ICCs within the wider context of Place Based Well Being Services such as leisure, sports, housing and the third and community sectors, embedding Public Health Specialists across our area, linking with third sector and community provision.
