Healthier Pennine Lancashire is a programme to improve our health and care system in Pennine Lancashire, which is made up of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.

We have worked with residents, volunteers, doctors, nurses, health and care professionals, community workers and others to develop our plans for change. We are working together in partnership across Pennine Lancashire to improve the health and care outcomes and to help everyone living here live healthier lives.

Developing Integrated Care

Over the last few years in Lancashire and South Cumbria, a number of organisations have been working in a more collaborative way. This includes NHS organisations, local authorities, the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector, hospices and local universities.

We have already made great progress in improving the way our services work together and how we work as a partnership. Joining up health and care is nothing new – we have been working towards this for some years, and we want to build on this excellent work. This includes further strengthening the incredible joint working we have seen throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, which has made a massive difference to the lives of local people and their families.

You can read about how we are working together to integrated care across Lancashire and South Cumbria in our Delivering Integrated Care narrative.
