Making better use of our joint resources is crucial, including staff, services and money. We now have an opportunity to develop better ways of working between the existing partners, services and professionals on the Fylde coast.
Known as ‘Healthier Fylde Coast’, the Integrated Care Partnership brings together the local NHS, Blackpool Council and Lancashire County Council.
For the past 18 months local NHS and council organisations have been working in partnership to plan health and care services for the next five years across the Fylde Coast.
We looked at what local people have previously told us about their experiences of local health and care services and what they think those services should look like.
This information was used to help identify initial areas of focus within the early planning of the strategy, but also to understand where we had gaps in our insight.
